Your First Visit
Please arrive about 10 minutes early so that you have enough time to complete a New Patient form.
Your dentist will start by reviewing your medical and dental history and completing a comprehensive dental exam. Your exam will include a thorough examination of your gums, teeth, bite and jaw, an oral cancer screening and any x-rays that may be needed.
Based on your history and examination, your dentist will create a long-term dental treatment plan for you. Your dentist will also leave time to answer any questions you have about your dental health and treatment options.

- What precautions do you take to protect patients from COVID-19?
We understand you want to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that we take every precaution we can to protect our patients from COVID-19, as well as other viruses, when you come in for your appointment. Here are the specific precautions we take:
i. Enhanced patient protection measure: all our staff members have upgraded their protective gear. This includes appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all appointments. Between patients, we meticulously clean and disinfect rooms and all surfaces, as well as sterilize instruments.
ii. A virtual waiting room: we have set up a "virtual waiting room" for our patients to check-in via text message and wait, if necessary, somewhere safe outside the clinic, such as in a car.
iii. Tech-enabled screening: we digitally pre-screen patients in advance for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors.
iv. Air filtration (HEPA): in the coming days we will be investing in high-efficiency air filtration systems to ensure air quality is sanitary and for aerosol producing procedures.
We use e-files through our PMS tracker, which means patients can now complete forms electronically, saving the need for paperwork and any concern regarding germ transmission via paper forms.
