Not sure what to expect on your first visit? Taking on anything new, whether it’s being the new kid in school or starting a new job can take our imaginations and feelings into overdrive. Especially, when you’re seeing a new dentist. For many patients seeing a new dentist can be a little nerve wracking especially when you don’t know what to expect.
We’re all about making smiles and Dr. Chad and our team want nothing more than for you to feel comfortable and even excited for your first visit, so we’re going to take you step-by-step on what to expect as a new patient.

The studies are in and they all reveal how your oral health can have an impact on your body’s overall health. With links to diabetes and heart disease, preventive care can make a difference to your health. Preventative care can make a world of difference in your overall health, so don’t be shy about scheduling an exam!
As professionals in the field of dentistry, we have made specific efforts to know what makes our patients comfortable and well-informed during their visits; one element of putting our potential patients’ minds at peace is providing a simple layout of what they should expect. So no matter the current condition of your mouth or how long it’s been since you’ve seen dentist we’re here for you, we’re a judgment-free zone.
The first step is a friendly phone interview to listen to your concerns and discover what type of first visit will be best to meet your individual needs. Expect a call in the days prior to your visit from a member of our team to ensure you have the location of the office and to answer any additional questions you may have.
Meet The Team
As you walk in the door, you will be greeted by our patient coordinators and introduced to the rest of the team. You will also be welcomed to our practice with a tour of our facility. We love introducing our dental home and helping you become familiar with our facility. After the tour, our team will ensure the information reviewed during your initial phone call is in order and you are ready to begin.
X-Rays & Photo Shoot
Next, our treatment coordinator will take any necessary records for your specific dental visit. These can include digital x-rays, 3-D imaging technology, and photographs. Our joint vibration test allows our team to perform jaw joint analysis as well. These tools help Dr. Chad diagnosis and develop the best options for you specifically.
Exam and Diagnosis
Once the records have been taken you are ready to meet Dr. Chad. Dr. Chad’s dedication to providing the latest in dental technology and treatment is the center of patient care and why he is an educator of advanced dentistry to other dentists across the country.
Dr. Chad will then perform an extensive exam to screen for any diseases, jaw trouble, or any questionable conditions. Afterwards, he will discuss his observations with you and make recommendations, or present you with options for further treatment. He may also request additional imagery, tooth impressions, information, or records if an issue of concern arises from the exam.
