New Patient Information
Welcome to our office! We are excited you are taking the first step to your dental health and happy to partner with you on your journey. Here you will find information about your first visit, payments and insurance, links to your new patient forms all fillable securely online, and office hours, map and directions.
Your first visit usually is for a comprehensive evaluation. You will spend enough time with Dr. Dahman for you to get to know each other. He will review your health history, discuss your concerns and look at any previous dental records you may have provided. X-rays and dental pictures will be taken to help fully assess your dental health. Dr. Dahman will perform a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, mouth and jaw joints and do a cosmetic assessment if you desire. He will go over the findings of your exam in details and outline any issues detected, and any corrective treatment options that may be available to you. A teeth cleaning may be booked with that initial appointment as well.
If you have an emergency, are experiencing significant pain, or have only one specific problem that you would like to address, your first visit would be for a limited evaluation and possibly to do a procedure to alleviate your pain or address your concern. Please feel free to discuss the nature of your concern and reasons for your visit with our front office team. They are highly experienced and can guide you to the type of appointment that best fits your needs.
We are a Preferred Provider for most dental insurance networks, so you will be getting the best coverage and the best benefits in our office. If you have dental insurance, your first visit is typically covered at a 100% in our office. If you do not have dental benefits, please ask us for our new patients special.
