First Dental Visit

Your first visit to our dentist office is an opportunity for us to get to know you on a personal level, learn about your past oral health history, and understand your goals and expectations for your dental health in the future. We want to make your experience the best it can be.

What to Expect from Your Dental Visit

Dr. Smith will perform a complete examination during your first visit, which will also include x-rays, photos of your teeth and mouth, and an evaluation of your bite. With all of this information, she can give you a clear picture of your dental treatment needs and discuss with you a plan for achieving and maintaining optimal oral health.

We understand that dental health plays a direct role in your overall well-being, so as a trusted member of your health care team, it is very important to Dr. Smith to take the time to educate you about how we can help you achieve your health goals.

What Makes Our Dentist Office Different

At Smith Dentalworks, we offer little touches and amenities like complimentary beverages, headphones, and neck pillows to make you feel comfortable. A paraffin hand wax treatment may even make you feel like you’re at the spa. We look forward to introducing you and your family to how different an experience at a dental office can be.

We also use state-of-the-art technology, including the innovative Solea®️ Laser. This makes pain-free dental procedures a reality. Patients who have been treated using the Solea Laser say it feels similar to eating a snow cone because it is slightly cold but not painful. This is a revolutionary tool that we are proud to use at our dental practice.

Our Dental Services

After your first visit, we may recommend different types of continuing treatment to improve or maintain your oral health or to make cosmetic adjustments to your smile if you desire.

Our services include:

General and Preventive Dentistry

We offer general dentistry as well as preventive care for children and adults. As a family dentist, we perform routine check-ups, clean your teeth, and screen for oral health issues. We recommend coming in for regular visits so we can keep your teeth looking and functioning their best. This also allows us to diagnose and treat any problems before they become serious.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Some of our patients come to see us because they are self-conscious about the way their smile looks or they want to improve the appearance of their teeth. If this is true for you, we can discuss cosmetic dentistry options during your initial visit to our office. Depending on your specific situation, these might include veneers, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, or other treatments.

Dental Implants and Restorations

If you are missing teeth, we can discuss restoring your smile through dental implants. These are titanium posts that stimulate your jaw like a natural tooth root. This helps prevent bone loss that occurs when you lose teeth. To give you a natural-looking and functional smile, we can place dental crowns or bridges on your implants.

Crooked teeth are more than simply a cosmetic issue. They can have an impact on your dental and oral health. Invisalign®️ clear aligners are a simple and discreet way for our adult patients to straighten their smiles. There are fewer office visits than would be necessary for braces and you can usually switch aligners at home.
