PATIENT REVIEWSSERVICES





First-Time Patients


If you are a first-time patient, you may be apprehensive about your upcoming appointment. No need to worry—you’ll find that our appointments typically follow the process below.

First, you will be greeted by our friendly front office staff members, and asked to complete any necessary paperwork. We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes early if you have not completed paperwork at home. (Download first-time patient paperwork below.)

Next, one of our skilled dental hygienists or assistants will guide you into the X-ray room. We will take a few dental X-rays in order to identify any problems with your teeth that are invisible to the naked eye.

Once your X-rays are completed, your dental hygienist or assistant will ask you about the reasons for your visit, any dental concerns you may have, and any goals you may have regarding your oral health. He or she will also review your health and dental history.

If your visit is for a routine cleaning and checkup, your hygienist clean your teeth, and one of our Salisbury dentists will inspect them for any signs of damage or decay.

If you are visiting to learn more about cosmetic or restorative dentistry options, you will meet with one of our dentists to discuss your options and outline a treatment plan.
