Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and 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 we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, you will spend quality time with Dr. Rich and one of our highly trained hygienists. Together, they will review your medical history and dental history and spend time getting to know you and your needs and expectations moving forward.
Dr. Rich will prescribe needed X-rays of your teeth and mouth. The team will conduct a thorough exam, including, teeth, gum health, and jaw health, and oral cancer screening.
Dr. Rich will then turn you over to the care of the hygienist, who will clean and polish your teeth. Please allow two hours for this first visit. We know that sounds long, but we believe this is your most important appointment with us.
In order to ensure a smooth appointment, please complete the following:
- Bring your DENTAL insurance card, if we will be filing insurance for you.
- Go to www.ronrichdds.com and fill out your forms online prior to your visit.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist at least every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for your routine visit, your appointment will be scheduled for one hour.
