Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, we ask you to be part of a patient interview. We will go over your past dental experiences and any concerns you may have.
We will discuss our vision with you to confirm you’re in the right place. We’ll review your dental and medical history forms, and then at the chair we’ll collect any necessary information to make a good diagnosis, including X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
We will also check your teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis, as well as examine chewing patterns. Dr. Hannon will meet with you to discuss your X-rays and experiences, and outline our recommended options for care. We will carefully go over the pros and cons of each choice with you, or just provide the “big picture” — whichever you prefer.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment

The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
