Welcome to our office!
We understand that each patient has different health needs, aesthetic goals, and expectations about treatment. At your first appointment, we will gladly set aside time to discuss your questions regarding you and your family’s care.
Upon your arrival, you will be kindly greeted by our front office staff. They will assist you in getting checked in at the front desk and will notify our Clinical Staff that you have arrived.
Your first appointment will be scheduled with Dr. Haberman and one of our Registered Dental Hygienists. Your visit will include any necessary x-rays, and a comprehensive examination. This will consist of an oral cancer screening, a periodontal examination—which will determine the type of cleaning necessary, and a restorative evaluation to address any tooth-related concerns.
The doctor and the hygienist will diagnose your hygiene and restorative needs as per your examination, and the treatment recommendations will be explained to you in detail. We generally allow enough time to include a cleaning during your initial appointment unless more time is needed to thoroughly diagnose and explain your treatment plan.
An estimate will be prepared by our front office staff, and your next appointment can be scheduled.
After your initial appointment, we recommend that you schedule your next visit before you leave the office to ensure you can be seen at a time that works best for you. If you would prefer we can remind you to schedule closer to the time you will be due. Our hygienists recommend a professional cleaning at least twice a year. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease or you are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment, your hygienist may recommend more frequent visits depending on your treatment plan.
