New patient experience
Your first visit is our absolute favorite! We love meeting new people and we consider it to be an opportunity to know what makes you uniquely you and how can we establish a relationship that allows us to provide the absolute best care possible for you!
In order to make this visit most successful, we ask that all forms (sent to you after your first phone call) in your patient portal are filled out at least 48 hours prior to your appointment. This critical step allows us to prepare for your initial visit. Please allow for 15-20 minutes to fill out this information.
If you would like us to provide you with paper or email copies, please let us know at your initial phone call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

First Visit Expectations
Below is an overview of what you can expect during your first visit to White Sage Dentistry.
Your first visit is an important time for our team to get to know you and also you to get to know our team. Please let us know your comfort menu preferences and we will have them waiting for you. Kindly plan on being in our office for approximately 90 minutes for the initial meeting (future visits are quicker!) During this first visit, we will work to better understand your priorities and oral health goals. We will also review your medical and dental history along with any medications or supplements you may be taking that can impact your oral health. We always encourage our patients to ask questions and express any concerns or sensitivities they would like addresed.
Next we will complete a complimentary oral cancer screening using Velscope technology, acquire a complete set of digital radiographs, and capture photos of your teeth using our digital camera. A gum and bone exam will be completed. If no signs of periodontal disease are present, you will have a routine cleaning. If signs of periodontal disease are noticed, we may reschedule the cleaning portion of your visit to allow for more time.
After gathering this data, our doctor will complete a comprehensive oral evaluation to thoroughly examine the head and neck, jaw joints, gums, teeth, bite, and dentofacial features. Once your exam is complete, the doctor will discuss all findings and recommendations. Together we can create a healthy, effective prevention and treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal needs. We can prioritize and stagger any treatment visits to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional well-being is, too. We are able to “edit down” the first visit to accommodate anxious patients and we will always work hard to make your visits a positive experience. Please let us know at any time if there is anything we can do to make your visit even more exceptional!
