A Warm, New-Patient Welcome

Everything to Know for Your 1st Dental Arts of Rockland Visit

First Visit Experience

Your first visit with us is a very special one; it’s our first opportunity to get to know you, show you around the office, and welcome you to your new smile home. You will be greeted at as soon as you come – no awkward waiting or wondering what to do – offered a beverage and our soothing amenities menu and taken on a tour of the office. We are especially proud of our comfortable treatment rooms, state-of-the-art sterilization system, and a wide array of dental technology so you can be sure you will see it all. Of course, you will meet all the members of the team; there are no strangers in this office!

Once the tour is complete and all of your questions about our office answered, you will begin your comprehensive exam and evaluation. New patients are always amazed at how in-depth this examination is, but we firmly believe in creating the best baseline to which we can compare all future exams.

At this and each exam thereafter we:

  • Examine your teeth for even the tiniest cavity with our intraoral camera
  • Look for any signs of wear or breakage
  • Examine and evaluate your head, neck, and jaw structure
  • Check your soft tissue for any sign of inflammation
  • Measure your gum pockets and exam for the tiniest signs of periodontal disease
  • Asses your oral cavity and dentition for signs of physical illness
  • and, when necessary, take digital x-rays

Once the exam is completed, you and the doctor will sit down and take plenty of time to go over our findings, answer your questions, and listen to your concerns.

If we do discover a problem such as early symptoms of gum disease, worn restorations, or possible decay or infection, we will work with you to create a treatment plan to take care of your issues in a way that is comfortable and affordable for you.
