New Patient Appointment


Even if it’s been awhile since you’ve seen a dentist, we’re here to help! Our comprehensive services and customized treatment plans are tailored to fit your needs – and your budget.

Your first appointment with us will consist of an examination, set of full mouth x-rays and evaluation of your oral health. A teeth cleaning can usually take place this visit. However, a complex medical history or active periodontal disease may warrant an additional appointment.

Initial appointments are typically scheduled for 60 minutes. We ask all new patients to arrive 10 to 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time in order to complete any necessary paperwork. New patient paperwork is available under Forms They can be completed prior and brought with you to your appointment.

Please use one of the following options to complete your New Patient forms. We welcome you to our dental family and look forward to seeing you at your first appointment!. To complete and submit electronically, please click the link below:
