First Visit

Asa new patient at Converse Dentistry, we want you to notice the difference in our service, care and professionalism from the moment you come in for your first visit. Expect to be greeted with a friendly smile and have one of our team members efficiently check you in for your appointment. We like to make everything simple and stress-free for our patients. We can help you with your insurance claims and financial questions, then point out the many amenities we have available for your comfort during your visit.

During Your Appointment

Your first visit is a chance for us to get to know you and for you to learn more about what we offer in terms of care, comfort, and convenience. We will start with introducing you to one of our hygienists that will begin your appointment with obtaining x-rays of your teeth to check for abnormalities. We also use painless laser technology to scan your teeth for signs of decay with our Diagnodent® device. Both the laser scan and x-rays give us an in-depth look at your current oral health to help us devise a treatment or oral maintenance plan.

The next step is our oral hygiene process. This includes measuring your gums, inspecting the gum tissue, and recommending the best cleaning plan for your needs. We offer ultrasonic cleanings that eliminate plaque and tartar using vibrations for superior oral hygiene. If there are signs of gum disease, we will create a plan for gum disease therapy to restore your gums to optimum health.

Finally, the third phase of your first visit will be to meet with one of our experienced dentists. During this time, a treatment or maintenance plan will be suggested based on your exam and x-rays. This is a good time to discuss any concerns or ask questions about services we provide. We always schedule plenty of time for each of our patients, so you will never feel rushed through your appointment.

Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your first and subsequent visits more enjoyable. Welcome to our dental family – we look forward to caring for your smile. Contact our office today to schedule your first appointment with Converse Dentistry.
