Beginning with your fist phone call, we will treat you with professional attentiveness and genuine warmth and kindness. We will answer your questions and assist you in finding the appointment time that is most convenient for you. Then we will provide you with an easy way to complete the paperwork that will facilitate your first visit and make sure you know how to find us.
When you arrive, you’ll notice that we have chosen a quiet, restorative location in a wooded area with marsh views to provide you with a pleasant, calming retreat. And we created our reception area to feel like a comfortable living room where you can relax and enjoy soft music, streaming video, and complimentary refreshments like coffee, tea, and fresh fruit.
Your First Visit Procedure
We’ll greet you by name and give you a tour of our office, and you’ll have a chance to see the quality of our cosmetic and restorative services on our wall of fame. We’ll then seat you with your hygienist, who will conduct an interview and review your paperwork to find out more about your history and concerns. She will also take digital x-rays and photos.
Dr. Dennis will come in to meet you and establish a relationship with you. She will listen to your concerns and complete a comprehensive examination. She will then take 30 minutes or more to analyze your case and prepare it in a format that is easy to follow. And she will meet with you in her consultation room, usually on a second visit, to review and discuss her findings with you and propose a plan of treatment, should need it.
If you are coming in for a smile makeover, we’ll offer you a complimentary smile analysis. We’ll take photos of your smile, and you’ll have a chance to sit down with Dr. Dennis to discuss the changes you’d like to see. We encourage you to bring in any photos of smiles you like, to facilitate this process. We will then create a digital smile makeover by photoshopping in the changes you want to make. That way you can see what your new smile will look like before we begin any work. Dr. Dennis says, “It’s like icing on the cake!”
State-of-the Art Technology
Dr. Dennis and her staff pursue regular training to learn about the most effective recent methods and technology. We want to ensure you receive the most advanced care available. To that end, we utilize digital x-rays, which reduce radiation exposure by as much as 90 percent, and panoramic x-rays, which help in visualizing the entire mouth. In addition, we use intraoral cameras, which can magnify images by 40 percent and help you see areas you would not otherwise be able to see. And dental lasers ease soft tissue therapies, reducing the need for healing time.
We are also equipped with CEREC® technology, which quickly fabricates strong, beautiful, lifelike crowns. This means that we can diagnose the need for a crown, and create it and place it, all in the same appointment. We take optical impressions, avoiding the traditional gooey impression material, and there’s no need for an uncomfortable temporary crown.
