First Visit

Waiting-Room.JPGWe look forward to meeting you. We understand that you may feel somewhat uncertain when coming to a dental practice for the first time, and we will work hard to earn your trust. We have built our practice on referrals from our satisfied patients, many of whom have been with our practice for years, and your satisfaction is important to us. We routinely ask our patients to rate their satisfaction with their care and 99% of our patients said they would be likely to refer our practice to a family member or friend.

what-makes-us-different.jpgYou will be greeted when you arrive, and we will take the time to get to know you and your dental concerns. We encourage you to arrive 10 minutes early for your first visit so you can fill out necessary paperwork, including a medical history form that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. You can also fill out the medical history form online if you prefer.

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. You will receive a comprehensive oral examination by the dentist that includes a screening for oral cancer, digital X-rays, gum assessment, TMJ assessment, occlusion (bite) evaluation, and address any cosmetic and other concerns you may have. We will also provide an evaluation of any existing dental problems, and ensure that you have a clear understanding of any proposed treatment. You will also be scheduled for an appointment with our dental hygienists who will clean your teeth and provide oral hygiene instructions to help you care for your teeth.

Exam-Room.jpgPlease let us know if you have any special needs or concerns. We are here to help and we look forward to establishing a lasting and satisfying dental relationship.

"I am very impressed with Dr. Hyman and the whole dental practice. They were very warm and welcoming to me the day of my first appointment. They are very gentle, thorough and explain everything as they go along while showing you exactly what needs to be done. I would not only refer friends and family to Dr. Hyman, I already have. I am so happy to have found a dentist I trust!" ~Kimberly
