What to Expect at Your First Visit

We understand that visiting a dental office isn’t always a priority. We take pride in making your dental visits with us as comfortable and personalized as possible! If your visit is due to a dental emergency, we may modify the following process, but in general, you can expect:

Warm Welcome
The moment you step inside our office, we’ll be here to welcome you! Our front office staff loves building close relationships with our patients, and we are excited to bring you into our dental family.
Meet the Team
You’ll be introduced to our team members who will be here to provide you with friendly dental care every time you visit our Lansing, MI dental office. It’s perfectly alright if you don’t remember the names of our staff, but we make it a point to remember yours!
Office Tour
We’ll show you around our office so you can become familiar with where the exam rooms, bathroom, and exits are. However, we do our best to provide attentive care, so you’ll rarely be left alone during your appointment unless necessary.
The next step of your appointment is a consultation with our dentist. This is the perfect time to discuss what you do and don’t like about your smile as well as any dental problems you may be experiencing.
Digital X-Rays
An important part of your first visit is x-rays. These provide an in-depth view of your oral structures and the high-resolution images make it possible for our dentist to spot small cracks, cavities, and other problems with your teeth.
Your dentist will complete a thorough oral examination of your tissues, gums, bone, and teeth. We’ll check for decay, disease, and infection, and complete an oral cancer screening.
Hygiene Cleaning
Finally, we’ll complete a dental hygiene cleaning. Your new dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, carefully floss each tooth, then polish your teeth with a gritty toothpaste.
Complimentary Gifts
You’ll always leave our office with a gift bag of items, including floss or floss-ups, toothpaste, and a new toothbrush. Now you can enjoy your newly cleaned teeth and maintain proper oral health until your next visit!

Making Your Dental Care Affordable

Our dental team wants to ensure that all our patients can afford to have healthy smiles for life. We accept many dental insurance plans and are here to help you maximize your benefits. We also partner with third-party dental financing companies that provide low monthly payment plans for those without insurance and for costly procedures. We’ll help make sure that our dental care in Lansing, MI is affordable for you and your family!
