Your First Visit and Maintaining Regular Checkups
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and state-of-the-art dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist; you are not alone, and our practice puts forth an extra effort to make sure that you are comfortable and happy every time you visit our practice. We are sensitive to your needs as a patient; you can always count on receiving individual attention from our doctor and staff.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your dental health.
Your first visit with Dr. Herod includes:
- A review of your complete dental and medical history forms.
- Complete X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
- An oral exam - Dr. Herod will perform a comprehensive oral exam. If you are scheduled for a prophylaxis, which is a professional dental cleaning, Bonnie, Dr. Danna's registered dental hygienist, will clean your teeth, check your periodontal health, screen for gum disease, perform extra oral and intraoral exams and give fluoride treatment as needed.
Once Dr. Herod has reviewed your dental and medical health history forms, and completed your dental exam, he will provide you with a dental consultation, and information about any additional dental treatments you, or your child, may need. During this time Dr. Herod will also answer any questions you may have. Dr. Herod and his staff welcome any questions you may have, and are always available to listen to your concerns.
Bring your smile; but also remember to bring these things with you to your first dental appointment:
