Your First Visit

We’re ready to partner with you for a great smile and overall health – but we understand that your first visit to a new dentist can be stressful. Our primary goal is to make you as comfortable as possible! We recommend that you schedule your first appointment for a date and time when you’ll be most relaxed, and arrive a few minutes early. Your first visit should take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the recommended treatment.


Intake

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by our friendly treatment coordinator. You will then have a private consultation where you are free to discuss your dental history and dental care desires. You’ll then meet with Dr. Spaulding, who will listen to your dental health needs, concerns and expectations. the exam will not begin until all your questions have been answered and you’re completely comfortable – including your choice of our unique amenities.


Exam

Dr. Spaulding will complete a comprehensive dental examination including a clinical screening for oral cancer, a tooth-by-tooth charting to identify and record the current condition of your teeth, a periodontal chart to assess the condition of your gums, and a occlusal evaluation. A smile analysis for a aesthetic smile enhancement may also be provided followed by a discussion of options.


Next Steps

Following the examination, an intro-oral camera will provide a video tour of your mouth. A customized outline of the procedures recommended to improve your dental health and provide a beautiful, healthy smile would then be reviewed. Then Dr. Spaulding’s highly trained professional hygienist will complete a comprehensive general cleaning or initiate the recommended therapy for treating gum disease.
