New Patients: What Can You Expect On Your First Visit?

So, you’ve made your first appointment with our office. We know that visiting a new dentist’s office can be an anxious experience. Let us help make your first visit with us more comfortable by taking you through some of the things you can expect to experience.

First, we hope you will take advantage of the online tools we have provided on our New Patients page. You can download our new patient forms and fill them out even before your first visit. You can complete these in the comfort of your home at a time convenient for you. Just bring them with you to your appointment and we’ll do the rest.

Next, please take a tour of our office so you will feel like you are in familiar territory when you actually visit us. We have a comfortable and open waiting room and kids playroom to keep your little ones busy.

Your Comfort Comes First!

The one thing that all of our patients mention is how attentive our doctor and team are to their level of comfort throughout their visit. That is not accidental! We have seriously considered what we could do to make our patient’s visits easier, shorter, and more comfortable. Here are a few of the comforting amenities we provide that we hope you will take advantage of during your visit:

Sedation Dentistry – This is a wonderful option for those who experience more than the usual nervousness about a dental visit. Please share any of these anxious feelings with our team and we will be happy to discuss sedation options that will make your visits more comfortable for you.

Headphones – Listen to your favorite relaxing music. This is especially helpful for those who don’t like the sounds of dental instruments.

Overhead TV – The time in the dentist chair will pass quickly and pleasantly while watching your favorite TV shows with our ceiling-mounted televisions.

Aromatherapy – Sometimes people have a negative reaction to the usual medical smells of a dentist office. This soothing therapy removes that negative influence and instead produces feelings of well-being and relaxation.

Blankets and Pillows – Making sure you feel totally comfortable and secure is always our team’s 1st priority.

New Patient Special

As you can see, we will do whatever it takes to provide you with a dental visit unlike any you may have experienced before. Also, we are currently running a New Patient Special, so please be sure to take advantage of it on your visit.

Well, we hope walking through what you can expect on your first visit has helped to ease any feelings of anxiety. Our team is looking forward to your visit and we can’t wait to welcome you to our dental family.

If you are looking for one of the most caring dentists in Beaverton and a comfortable new dental home where you will feel at ease and pampered, please call us at (503) 639-6900 or contact us and we will be happy to get you started as a new patient.
