First Visit

Thank you for choosing our office, where we have created a comfortable environment in which you can feel confident about the dental care you receive. 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 dental needs.

When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. Additionally, the forms are available to fill out online. Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs. However, some insurance companies require a predetermination of benefits to determine what you will owe.

Your initial appointment will last approximately one hour. In most cases, we will clean your teeth, and X-rays will be taken. Dr. Belhumeur will perform a thorough exam which help in diagnosing tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. After the examination, Dr. Belhumeur will provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication, and we promise to speak candidly with you. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal – keeping your teeth and gums healthy!
