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, Dr. Argo will review your dental and medical history forms, and we will capture fully digital x-ray images of your teeth and mouth. Then, the doctor will meet with you for a consultation to discuss all findings we have collected and help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have. Our #1 goal for you is to have a healthy mouth. When planning your schedule, this initial visit usually lasts about 90 minutes. At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, always checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
- Your driver's license
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist a minimum every six months for regular checkups and routine preventive care to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit our hygienists, please remember that most preventive care appointments will last between 60 and 90 minutes.
