Visit our Burien Dental Office
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.
Take X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
Examine your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis. This may include an oral rinse test to determine your individual risk for cavities and/or periodontal disease.
Perform an oral cancer screening. This may include an oral rinse test for the presence of HPV.
Possibly clean and polish your teeth, should your appointment be scheduled appropriately.
After your X-rays and periodontal charting are complete, the 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. If you have X-rays more recent than one year from a previous dentist, please be sure to bring them or have your old office email them to us beforehand.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
Your completed patient information forms (click here).
Your insurance card.
A complete list of your medications and/or supplements.
If you have a pacemaker, please bring the device ID card.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist at least every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy, or more often if any gum problems are detected.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
