What To Expect on Your First Dentist Visit
We fully care for and respect our patients and their time. You will experience little or no waiting prior to your appointment. When you come in the office, you will be greeted by a member of our knowledgeable and friendly staff who will guide you through your visit. We see only one patient at a time, so you can expect our full and undivided attention when you visit Dr. Grapevine’s office. Our team works with every patient one-on-one to evaluate their unique risk factors for common dental concerns and to help them maintain a healthy smile between visits.
At your first visit, you will be seen by Dr. Grapevine and one of our registered dental hygienists. Your first visit is usually longer than the following visits because Dr. Grapevine will want to get to know you and listen to your dental concerns and needs. We can help you avoid potential dental problems by identifying early risks. If Dr. Grapevine finds any such risks or instability, he can offer intervention treatments that will prevent future problems and save you from unnecessary pain, and expense. During a routine visit, you can expect:
- Dental exam
- Screening for tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer
- Occlusal analysis
- Dental cleaning
- Fluoride as needed
- Dental x-rays when necessary
