Your First Visit
If you're about to experience your first visit with DeWan Dental Wellness, we hope you are ready for a total wellness approach to dental care! Read the About Us section to learn how we promote not only your health but your comfort, too. From chair-side iPods to a Lego table for your children, we strive to make our dentist office as comfortable as possible.
If your first dentist visit with us is an emergency visit, we will address your primary concern by taking x-rays and getting the problem under control.
Your first routine dentist visit will last 90 minutes to two hours. It will include x-rays, cleaning, and preventative routine care, as well as an initial comprehensive exam. During this exam, we listen to your concerns, review your full-mouth x-rays, present you with a video tour of your dentition, chart the existing condition of your teeth, chart areas of concern, measure your gum tissues, screen for cancer, analyze the aesthetics of your smile, evaluate your TMJ (jaw joint) health with Doppler ultrasound technology and chart occlusion (the way your teeth come together). We get a lot done, and it's all worth it!
During your first visit, you should also get acquainted with our various comfort items: listen to music on a chairside iPod, relax with a warm neckwrap, or lay back with a sleep mask, special pillow and bolster.
Before you visit, we can also guarantee that you know how much your service will cost. See our payment and insurance page for details.
