Your First Visit at Piney Orchard Dental

New Patient Information

We know that first visits to any dentist’s office can be intimidating.

Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional well-being is, too. 

We want your first visit with us to exceed your expectations, so please ask any questions and offer any suggestions you have!

Nice to meet you

During your first visit, we will get to know you by asking some questions about your medical and oral health history. Please bring a list of any medications you may be taking and their dosages, including all vitamins and over-the-counter supplements. 

dental exam

Next, we will perform a Comprehensive (but easy) oral exam that includes a non-invasive oral cancer screening, gum measurements to check for signs of infection, a check of all your existing dental work, and several x-rays to check for cavities or other issues. If no signs of major gum infections are present, we will complete thorough oral hygiene maintenance (a “cleaning”). If we do notice signs of moderate to severe gum infections, we may reschedule the oral hygiene maintenance portion of your visit to allow for more time and to get pre-authorization from your dental insurance provider.

Accessible Dentistry

the smile you deserve
on a budget you can afford

personalized treatment plan

We recognize that no two patients are the same, and ensure we create a treatment plan customized exactly to your wants and desires.  Once your exam is complete, Dr. Greene will share photos of your mouth with you to review his findings and together, we will create a treatment plan that will give you a functional, healthy smile. We pride ourselves on reviewing all financial details of any procedure we perform prior to doing any dentistry, and will review in as much detail as you’d like different options to make your care as affordable as possible.
