First Visit

Thank you for choosing our office where we have created a comfortable environment in which you can feel confident about the dental care you receive. 

When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. We ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office.  It would be helpful to arrive just a few minutes early to complete these easy forms.  If you have dental insurance please be sure to bring your insurance card.  

To become an established patient in our office your first visit will include a full mouth series of films and a comprehensive oral examination.  (If you have current films at your previous office please let us know so that we may obtain a copy for you.)  Your first visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment.  The X-rays that are taken will allow Dr. Young to examine the jaw's structure and teeth position.  He will also examine your teeth for any possible tooth decay or other problems you may be experiencing.

A dental prophylaxis (cleaning) will take place at your second visit.  By scheduling your cleaning at your second visit it will allow us an opportunity to review your medical history and determine the amount of time needed for your cleaning appointment.

For any treatment recommendations that Dr. Young may have for you we will give you a printout of those recommendations.  This printout will list our fee, estimated insurance (if you have dental insurance) and your estimated cost.

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication.  We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations.  Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal...keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
