The first adult appointment will be scheduled with a dentist rather than a hygienist. This allows a comprehensive evaluation to be completed for you and to make sure you will receive the most appropriate level of care. We want to spend some time getting to know each patient and understand your dental goals – enough time to do a complete assessment, and diagnosis, and answer your questions. The only exception is for children, who may be scheduled with a hygienist first.
If your schedule is flexible we should be able to see you within two weeks for non-urgent new patient exams. If you have an emergency, please let us know as soon as possible – during our normal patient hours, you will be seen that day. Our office is prepared to handle most emergencies during the course of the day.
Our doctors are highly trained, but dentistry is constantly changing. So, they regularly attend continuing education courses and conferences that focus on technological advances and also belong to a variety of professional organizations like the American Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry. Our dentists are familiar with the latest journal articles and research. If you have questions about a procedure or treatment that you have heard about, ask your doctor – who will be happy to answer!
The DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) and DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) are the same degrees. The difference is only in the initials; the education and degrees are the same.
