What will happen at my first visit?
We take great pride in providing personalized, one-on-one care to each of our guests. This means that from day one, we'll take the time to get to know you and your preferences. The relationships we build with our patients are truly the best part of what we do, and we hope that you'll feel the same way!
Before we plan any treatment, we want to make sure that we understand your specific needs and concerns. You'll usually start out seeing one of our talented and gentle hygienists, who will assess your gum health. Next, we'll introduce you to your doctor, who will perform a comprehensive examination and then review any findings with you. At that point, we'll be able to begin treatment planning.
Your Role in the Dental Process
When you're a patient at our practice, we hope you'll take an active role in your treatment. You're in the driver's seat! We are your partners, and we will provide you with education and information to help you choose between your options. We'll always provide our expert opinion and recommendations to help guide you. We address all your needs, not just the immediate dental ones. We'll find out what your concerns are, and we'll take the time to learn more about your preferences. For instance, do you like conversation during your treatment or do you prefer some quiet time? Are you a big picture person or are you more into knowing the details? These insights into your personal comforts will help us customize your care so you can have the kind of appointment you want and deserve. To learn more about your first visit, call one of our offices in Lacey, Ruston, or Tumwater, WA.
