My first visit

If you are like most patients, you appreciate being informed before arriving at the dentist office. Below is an overview of what you can expect from Straight River Family Dental.

Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but also you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns and share with us anything you would feel that is important to help make your care as individual as you are.

Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment. You will be asked to provide a list of your medications and their dosage (including vitamins and supplements).

Full mouth series of x-rays or a panoramic x-ray and intraoral photos will be taken. The doctor will then perform a comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth and jaw, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.

If you haven't been to the dentist in a while, please don't worry- we will never judge you! You have taken the first step in an important decision - no need to feel guilty.

Once your new patient exam is completed, your dentist will discuss their findings with you. Together you can create a treatment plan that will best meet your goals. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you the smile you need in a timeframe you can afford.
