Your First Visit With Us
Your initial appointment as a new patient is the most important step in helping us get to know your oral health needs.
New patient appointments typically take about an hour and a half to complete. We’ll give you a tour of our office and then sit down for a private interview to go over your expectations and future dental goals. Dr. Wilkinson will stop by to say hello and order any appropriate x-rays prior to you having your teeth cleaned. Then, he will thoroughly examine your teeth and go over his findings with you. Our team will review your care plan and be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Emergency patients will be escorted back as quickly as possible. As soon as we figure out what’s wrong, we may also take an x-ray or two for further evaluation. Dr. Wilkinson will make a formal diagnosis and recommend what steps to take next.
New Patient Forms
Please try to complete your new patient forms prior to your arrival, as this will help save time at your appointment! Most people take about 15 minutes to properly fill out the intake forms.
If you have any questions, please call our office and we will be more than happy to assist!
