First Visit

At Northampton Dental, we want everything about your first dental visit as a new patient to be exceptional. From making your appointment to the first encounter with our staff as they check you in, we want you to feel welcome and appreciated. To make your first visit quick and convenient, we put our new patient forms online so you can fill them out before your appointment. This saves you time during your first visit to our office.

When you come into our office, you may be surprised at the stylish, comfortable surroundings. We want our patients to feel like guests at a spa, relaxed and at ease. Help yourself to our beverage bar, computers and other amenities while you wait to be called for your appointment. We value your time, so expect just a short wait before one of our team members comes to escort you back for your dental exam.

During Your Appointment

In most cases, you will start your first appointment with us by getting new X-rays. This will give us an in-depth view of your current oral health and help our dentist provide a thorough exam and treatment plan. Most first visits will also include a periodontal exam to determine the best level of cleaning needed to protect your oral and gum health.

Using your X-rays, a physical exam of your teeth and our advanced dental technology, the dentist will determine if you have any dental issues that need attention. After the exam, our dentist will explain any findings and offer a suggested treatment plan to maintain optimal oral health. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you are interested in cosmetic, orthodontic, or restorative dentistry options, this is a good time to discuss them with the dentist.

Your first visit is often a bit longer than most checkups as we are just getting to know you and your dental needs. However, we will always try to make all appointments as expedient as possible while still providing excellent care. We hope you have a pleasant first visit and enjoy the high level of care and comfort we provide at Northampton Dental. Contact our office today to schedule your first appointment with us.
