What can I expect at my first visit?
First of all, welcome! We're always so excited to meet new people!
We've designed our office to be relaxing and inviting from the moment you first walk in. You'll be warmly greeted and welcomed by either Karen or Jodi (in fact, we'll all make a point of meeting you and getting to know you better!). You can either fill out your forms in our office or you can download them from this website beforehand and bring them with you. We'll check your insurance benefits and invite you to relax in our comfortable reception area, where you can enjoy free WiFi or fun brainteaser games. If you have children with you, they'll enjoy the children's area with its coloring books and natural wood toys.
Next, we'll bring you back and help you get comfortable. We offer blankets and pillows for your comfort. If needed, we'll take x-rays.
Dr. Ebert will then begin your examination. Your examination will include a thorough screening of your teeth and gums, screening for periodontal disease, and screening for oral cancer. We make use of state-of-the-art technology like DIAGNOdent, which allows us to discover cavities early when they are tiny, and VELscope, which helps us find any cell abnormalities that could lead to cancer in your soft tissues.
Dr. Ebert will answer your questions and discuss your current level of health and your home care routine with you. He'll also ask about your treatment goals to learn more about your needs.
We'll invite you back to the office for a no-fee Review of Findings visit. At this visit, Dr. Ebert will go over your x-rays and his findings from your examination. You and Dr. Ebert can then develop a treatment plan that will help you reach your dental health goals.
