Your First Visit
Your initial visit to see Dr. Hank Jolly or Dr. Michelle Bedell begins with providing information to us regarding your medical and dental history by completing some paperwork. Our new patient forms are online and available to be downloaded and completed prior to your appointment for your convenience. Otherwise, please arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment so you can complete the paperwork in our office.
Your first appointment will include necessary X-rays, a comprehensive dental exam/emergency exam, and our staff professionals will clean your teeth.
After thoroughly assessing your dental needs, we will formulate a treatment plan designed to improve your oral health and to help you meet the goals you have regarding your smile.
We also offer nutritional counseling to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy and disease-free.
What goes on in your mouth plays a significant role in your total body health. Numerous studies have identified connections between oral health and serious systemic diseases including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis and even certain cancers. At your first visit and at every subsequent visit, we will share information about how keeping your teeth healthy can benefit your overall health.
If your first visit is due to dental trauma or a painful problem you’re experiencing, we will provide treatment to address your chief complaint and alleviate your pain. Our goal is to see emergency patients within 24 hours.
