What to Expect at Your First Visit

When you arrive at our office located in Geneseo IL, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. We ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • A photo ID
  • Any panoramic X-ray is taken within the past six months

Comprehensive Dental Exam

Your initial appointment will last approximately one hour. In most cases routine dental visits, we will clean your teeth, and X-rays will be taken. Our dentist will perform a thorough exam and evaluate the diagnostic records, which help in diagnosing teeth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems, and any signs of oral cancer. After the examination, our dentist will provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. Take-home oral hygiene instructions will also be provided, along with any suggestions to help you care for your teeth.

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication, and we promise to speak candidly with you. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal-keeping your teeth, gums, and jaw joints healthy!
