What to Expect from Our Dentist Office
Dental care is vital to the overall health of you and your family. Our gentle, caring expertise forms the foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
We are committed to serving you in our pleasant and professional atmosphere. Our office procedures are designed for your comfort and safety. We are proud of our caring team members who are dedicated to making your visit a positive experience. Our personal goal is for you to enjoy the benefits of good oral health and appreciate our efforts to provide quality dental care.
Your First Visit
During your first visit, we will take time to get to know you and your health. We will take the necessary X-rays and examine teeth for decay and gum/bone disease. We will also evaluate the soft tissues for cancer and the alignment of existing teeth. Patients needing more extensive treatment may require a separate consultation appointment.
At or before your first visit, we ask you to complete a Patient Information Form. (Please use the Child Health History Form for children under 18.) To save time at your first appointment, we encourage our new patients to complete this form ahead of time and bring it with them to our office. Please give us a call if you would like us to mail you the form in advance of your appointment.
We want you to be comfortable in our care. Our dentists and hygienists provide a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We use advanced technology when it can offer increased comfort and precise results. Patients are always informed before we start a procedure, so you’ll be confident knowing what to expect and why it’s needed.
For kids, we offer diversions and fun rewards, which may include:
- Sunglasses (to block the overhead light)
- TV with movies or cartoons
- Hand mirrors (to see what is happening to their teeth)
- A prize from the “Treasure Chest”
- A new toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss
We strive to live up to our name, Grand Rapids Dental Partners, in that our patients are indeed family members. From the moment they call to when they walk into our office and are greeted by our staff, we want them to feel at home, while acknowledging that patients have variable priorities.
Quality, promptness, and concern for their comfort and fears are a given. Every effort will be made by our team to overcome the barriers preventing our patients from receiving the care they deserve.
