First Visit

What to expect on your first visit.

Thank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs. We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive.

Call 417-881-1388 to schedule your first appointment.

First Visit

When you arrive for your first visit, please arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time. We will ask you to fill out a few forms that will get you acquainted with our office. Please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. For your convenience, may also fill these forms out online prior to your appointment.

On your first visit, we will complete a comprehensive exam and full mouth series of x-rays with the doctor. This visit will help us get acquainted with each other and learn about your goals and desires for your dental treatment. With this information, we will be able to determine any treatment you may need, and make a plan for your treatment. In most cases, you will receive a full treatment plan at the first appointment. From there, we can schedule you back for a cleaning with a hygienist and for any other appointments you may need. The first visit usually takes about 90 minutes.

Our Promise

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal-keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!

Your Child's "Happy Visit"

We welcome your child to our office for the very first time by scheduling them a "Happy Visit." We usually recommend this first visit sometime around their 3rd birthday. Our staff will help your child get acclimated to our office by:

  • Counting their teeth
  • Teaching them about dental instruments we use during treatment
  • Giving them a new toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss to use at home
  • Letting them pick a prize from our treasure chest
  • Taking their picture with their dentist to capture their "First Visit to the Dentist!"
