What to Expect at Your First Dental Visit

If you’re a new patient at Oakboro Family Dentistry, welcome! We look forward to meeting you. We understand that visiting a new dentist’s office may seem intimidating, but we do our best to help you feel at home. When you walk in, one of our friendly team members will greet you and ask you to fill out some paperwork before your appointment. This paperwork gives us time to look over your dental history before your exam.

To make the check-in process smoother, our new patient forms are available online. If you want to do the paperwork beforehand, you can download the forms and fill them out prior to your first visit!

Dental Exam, X-Rays & Cleaning

Our dentists take the time to get to know you, including your past dental experiences, your reasons for coming to see us, and your smile goals. Once you meet our dentists, we’ll do an initial exam with any necessary X-rays to take a closer look at your teeth, gums, and jaw. After your examination, our dental hygienist will clean your teeth, so you’ll leave our office with a fresh, bright smile. Your first appointment may be longer than a typical cleaning and exam because we want our patients to feel comfortable asking any questions or expressing any dental concerns they may have.
