First Appointment at Raleigh area dental office

As the preferred Raleigh-area dental care provider of many people in our local community, we do our best to make sure that every visit to our office is stress free. We ask that you arrive 10 minutes early with your driver’s license and insurance card to fill out your new-patient paperwork. You can also download them online, fill them out ahead of time, and bring them in with you.

Feel free to grab a Starbucks® coffee or hot cocoa from our lobby, use our Wi-Fi while you’re waiting, or grab a blanket and get comfy. Your first visit will take about 75 minutes, whereas the rest of your appointments will be based on the care you need. Our complete exam includes the following:

 

  • A tour of our state-of-the-art office
  • A review of your health history
  • X-rays when necessary
  • Imaging
  • Hygiene evaluation
  • A treatment and full cleaning

 

Your dentist will walk you through their findings and work closely with you to create a custom dental care plan designed to build and maintain your oral health. Children’s appointments are based on your child’s comfort level. As long as the child is comfortable, the appointment includes time for the dentist and the child to get acquainted, to complete an exam, and to clean your child’s teeth.

Please note: If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason at all, we are happy to do so with 24 hours’ notice prior to your appointment. Failure to cancel your appointment may result in a fee. If you have any additional questions about what to expect during your first exam, please feel free to contact our front office at one of our Raleigh area locations for more information.
