Your First Visit
We want to be sure your teeth and gums are healthy, and prevention is very important in achieving this goal. When you visit our office for the first time, we’ll take the necessary X-rays, do a tooth-by-tooth inspection, asses your gums for any signs of disease, screen for oral cancer, and examine your bite. You’ll also receive a thorough professional cleaning per our dentist suggests. If we spot any signs of trouble, we’ll discuss it with you. And if you have any questions or concerns, be sure to mention them to Dr. Gao or one of the team. We’ll be sure you leave our office feeling confident and informed.

As a courtesy and convenience, we’ve provided our new patient forms online. Feel free to print them off at home, fill them out when you have time, and then you can just drop them off with our front desk when you check in. If you prefer to fill out your paperwork in the office, be sure to arrive about 15 minutes early.
