Front Desk

Front Desk

First, we need to find out a bit about your medical history. This information is important because it will help determine which treatment options are right for you. After all, our mission is to provide the best possible care for you. If your medical history is complex, our team may need to modify treatment. For your convenience, download, complete, and submit our Intake Form before coming to see us.


Treatment  Coordination

Treatment Coordination

If you have further questions about recommended treatments or how to better understand your insurance policy (or complete documents), our team will gladly help. From general questions about options, to sending predetermination to your insurance provider, to signing up for new-patient specials, we want to make sure all your important questions are answered and you know you’ve got it covered. If you ever have more questions, just give us a call.


Hygiene

Hygiene

Your first hygienist appointment will be longer than most, even if you had regular appointments before coming to us. But that’s just because we want to get to know you before we treat you. We need that extra time to create a mouth-map to track changes over time, making it possible to more-accurately determine your oral health needs and concerns. We’ll also scan for oral cancer and assess you for TMJ (jaw joint) issues. Your hygienist is a “patient-education specialist” who will happily help you with the knowledge necessary to take care of your teeth at home.


Checkup

Checkup

Meet Dr. Gaile or Dr. Brett and discuss your personal oral health needs and desires. Together with you, the doctor will determine a personalized approach to meet your oral health needs and goals. We’ll set up a regular care schedule, design a treatment plan, and if you’re interested, tell you about how our cosmetic dentistry services can help you smile more. We’re great listeners – critical to an optimum outcome of your dental care.
