Your First Visit

Riverside Dental is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while we provide the best possible care.

Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health

During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and discuss your main dental concerns and goals. To best assess your oral health, we will need to take dental X-rays and perform a complete examination. Then one of our doctors will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have. 

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these to your first appointment

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

The people at Riverside Dental understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
