What can I expect at my first visit?
As you enter the door, you'll be greeted by Christy at the front desk. If you like, you can help yourself to a cup of coffee from our Keurig station and make yourself comfortable in our reception area!
You have the option of filling out your forms here at the office either electronically on our tablet or on good old-fashioned paper. If you would like to fill out your paperwork at the office, we do ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to allow time for this.
During your first appointment, our goal will be to start getting to know you and to establish a baseline for your current level of dental health. We'll take x-rays, intraoral photos, and perform a comprehensive exam. We generally don't perform a cleaning at your first appointment because your dental health and needs will determine what type of cleaning you should have.
Dr. Hoblitzell will discuss his recommendations with you and listen carefully to your input when developing your customized treatment plan. You are an important part of your dental care team, and your input and opinions are important to us!
If your first visit to our practice involves a dental emergency, we will focus the exam on the problem at hand to alleviate any pain and address the immediate concern. Once your emergency has been treated, we will schedule a full comprehensive exam to create a treatment plan, which will help you avoid emergencies in the future.
