Your first visit:
We want your first visit to our office to be a welcome one where we can establish a lasting relationship. We will discuss any areas of concern you may have and what your dental goals may be. We do that in part by obtaining vital information such as your medical and dental histories. This information is important so we can provide you with the highest quality care.
Dr. Goodman and staff are committed to providing the highest quality dental care available. Improving health, comfort, function and esthetics for our patients is always our paramount goal.
What to expect
When you arrive to our office for your first visit our Front Office Coordinator will provide you with necessary forms to be filled out. Please provide her with a copy of your insurance card at that time. You will then meet with one of our assistants to briefly go over your dental and health history and discuss any concerns or symptoms you may have.
Dr. Goodman will then perform an oral cancer screening, periodontal screening, and also check for any decay or problem areas with your teeth. He will also assess how well your jaw joints and muscles are working. This exam process gives you time to get to know, and feel comfortable with, our staff and the doctor. It also give you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your dental needs and goals with Dr. Goodman.
