What to expect when you visit Friendly Dental
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you –
your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, take your blood pressure, take X-rays of your teeth, and thoroughly examine your mouth, including teeth, gums, bite, TMJ, oral cancer and esthetics. Then, the doctor will discuss the findings and your wishes, help create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy. More frequently if there is gum disease present.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
