First Visit

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

What to Expect at Your First Visit

During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your current desires. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms.

Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Comprehensive Exam

Your initial exam will generally last from 30 minutes to an hour. Dr. Humphreys will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, and provide an evaluation outlining your periodontal condition, and the best treatment method for your case. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.

Open Communication

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment.

We are glad you chose our office and hope to communicate that to you and your family in all we say and do. We are committed to making your visit with us as comfortable as possible. Our personable staff is available to answer any questions and provide for your continued comfort.

Patient Comfort

We offer several sedation options to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Dr. Humphreys is qualified to provide local and intravenous sedation as well as nitrous oxide and any necessary oral sedatives.

During procedures, we offer headphones to listen to your choice of music or feel free to bring your own.

Heated blankets are available during treatment and heated facial wipes are also available.

A variety of beverages are offered in our reception area: different flavored coffees, hot cider, tea, and hot chocolate are just a few of our many selections. We also have chilled bottled water available along with various current newspapers and magazines for you to enjoy.
