Preparing for Your First Visit

Let’s Get Acquainted

Your initial appointment is an opportunity for mutual introduction; we aim to learn about your dental history and goals, and we invite you to discover the compassionate, personalized care that defines our practice. To ensure we provide the safest, most personalized support, we'll review your medical history, as certain conditions and medications can influence your treatment plan.

Comprehensive Oral Health Evaluation

A full-mouth series of X-rays and a detailed oral examination, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening, lay the groundwork for your tailored dental care plan. Regardless of the time elapsed since your last dental visit, our team, led by Dr. Vinita Patel, is here to guide you through your dental journey without judgment, focusing on your health and comfort.

Your Dental Care Plan

Following your examination, Dr. Patel will discuss her findings and collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan that aligns with your dental health needs and personal preferences. Our approach is flexible, allowing us to prioritize treatments to fit your schedule and budget.
