Office Visits

Our practice 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 providing the best care possible.

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 take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. Then Dr. James or Dr. Okerstrom will meet with you and/or your child to discuss the X-rays, help create an individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you or your son or daughter may have.

At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish teeth, and check the teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.

Bring that smile, but also remember to bring these to the first appointment

  • The 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.

We 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.
