Becoming a patient at our practice involves more than just getting dental work and being on your way. Our team works hard to build relationships with our patients and take the time to get to know you. We want to learn about your goals and desires so we can create a custom treatment plan that will help you feel genuinely confident about your smile. Your first visit is the perfect opportunity to get to know more about us and learn about different treatment options available. You may also get to meet our friendly, certified therapy dog, Leo.
You will get a chance to meet Dr. Christel or Dr. Micah Westmorland on your very first visit so we can have a face-to-face discussion and learn more about you. We want to make sure all our patients feel confident and secure that they are in good hands. All new patients receive digital x-rays of the mouth and jaw and intraoral photos, and undergo an oral cancer screening with Velscope. The exam also involves checking the joints, gums, and teeth for any major issues or signs of damage. This gives us a comprehensive view of the current state of your jaw health and oral health. It helps us identify any underlying issues that need to be addressed.
Your first visit is the perfect time to ask any questions you have about different procedures, our practice, and our doctors’ background. Both of our doctors have extensive experience working with all types of patients and have been in practice for more than a decade. They both trained at the Dawson Academy and use a unique approach to address functional problems before cosmetic concerns.
