Your first visit to our White Bear Lake dental office will begin with a warm welcome at our front desk. Our entire dental team, including our dedicated dentists, are eager to make patients feel comfortable and get to know you.  We want to provide every patient who visits our dental office with outstanding, personalized dental care, and we look forward to meeting you.

Our Goal with Your First Visit

During your first visit, we will strive to make you feel empowered about your dental care. If your oral health is compromised, we will create a treatment with you to turn the situation around and so we can make your teeth and gums healthy again. When you leave, we want to have started you on a path to excellent oral health.

The First Dental Exam

Before your dental exam, we will collect a current medication list and medical history information from you so we can offer you the best care based on your needs. Then, we’ll discuss your dental care with you and address any of your concerns. 

The evaluation after your discussion with our dentist will consist of a tooth-by-tooth examination and periodontal assessment so we can ascertain the health of your gums. Our team may also take x-rays for diagnosis purposes.

Finally, you’ll enjoy a gentle clean and polish. Before you leave the office, our dental team will discuss any issues they found during your exam with you, and we will plan out next steps for necessary treatments. 

We never want our patients to feel overwhelmed when it comes to tackling their treatment plan, so don’t be concerned if there are a few items. We will work through all your dental needs at a pace you are comfortable with!
