What To Expect At The First Visit

To provide our patients with high quality dentistry we will begin your first appointment with a full comprehensive evaluation. The information obtained will aide you in learning about your personal dental health.


Adults – We reserve 70 minutes to perform your initial oral exam. Based on the exam findings, appropriate time is planned for a future cleaning and additional dental care as needed.

Children – We complete the exam and cleaning together in one appointment. Parents may be in the room with the child when the dentist does his exam to learn about any future dental needs.

Emergencies – We make every effort to treat emergencies in a timely manner.


Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial appointment:

1.  Current x-rays. If x-rays are not available, they may need to be taken at this appointment.

*Any current x-rays may be emailed to tcdpcldds@ameritech.net

2.  Dental and medical insurance cards.

*Regardless of insurance benefits, fees for all first appointments are required at the time of the visit. Claims will be submitted and reimbursed upon receipt.
