Welcome To Your First Visit
Thank you for choosing Flower Dental to take care of your dental needs. We look forward to making this your dental home. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident about receiving high quality, gentle dental care that fits your lifestyle and your budget.
Let's get to know each other.
Your new patient appointment will last approximately 1 – 1 ½ hours:
At this visit, we will get acquainted with each other. We will learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment. You will have plenty of time to ask questions, express your concerns, and share anything you want us to know. We want to know what is important to you.
Likewise, you can count on us to speak openly and honestly with you about your dental condition. If we identify any symptoms that require treatment, we will share our diagnosis, our treatment recommendations and any alternative treatments that exist. We believe good dental care requires open communication. Our relationship with you depends on mutual respect and genuine listening.
We use multiple methods to gather information about your condition:
- Health History Review
- Comprehensive exam- with charting of any cavities, fractures, tooth wear and missing teeth
- Digital X-Rays- to examine the jaw’s structure, teeth position and teeth decay.
- Diagnostic Photos – to see details about your condition
- Gum Disease Screening/Charting
When you leave our office, you can expect to have a better understanding of the condition of your oral health.
You're in great hands.
If it has been awhile since your last dental visit, no worries! You’re in the right place now. Pat yourself on the back for making this important decision to take care of yourself!
After we’ve gathered information, we’ll discuss your current condition and how we can help meet your goals for your dental and overall health. If you have an immediate concern, we can provide same-day emergency care. Alternately, if there is other treatment you need and desire, we will work with you to create a plan that fits your budget and your timeframe.. We’re dedicated to providing stages of treatment and flexible payment options that turn your dream of a healthy, beautiful smile into reality.
