New Patient/ 1st Visit

We recognize that visiting the dentist can be a source of anxiety for some people, especially those who have avoided treatment for many years. As a result, minor problems that could be easily and economically treated turn into more complex procedures. Our practice has been designed with your safety and comfort in mind. At your first appointment, we perform a comprehensive exam including an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation and any necessary x-rays using the latest low-dosage digital x-ray systems. You may also choose to have a cleaning at this appointment. Dr. Massey will advise you of any needed treatment and you will receive a written treatment plan as well as an estimate of any foreseeable costs.

For emergency visits, an x-ray will normally be taken of the problem area and a focused exam will be conducted in order to make a definitive diagnosis. Questions are welcomed at any time during your visit!
