Washington, DC 20016
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Ensure the X-rays of your teeth and mouth are current
- Your doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
We may also be able to clean and polish your teeth at this initial visit if you do not require advanced periodontal therapy.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Your completed patient information forms
- Your insurance information so that we may submit claims on your behalf
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 50 to 90 minutes.
Our appointment cancellation and no show policy
We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call to cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another patient from getting much needed treatment. Conversely, the situation may arise where another patient fails to cancel and we are unable to schedule you for a visit, due to a seemingly "full" appointment book.
If an appointment is not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, you will be charged a fee.
