What to Expect at Your First Visit

Whether you are on the phone with us or walking in the door, you’ll have our team’s undivided attention. Expect a friendly welcome and a smooth check-in process, then we’ll lead you to a treatment room to have your X-rays taken.

After your X-rays, you will meet Dr. Kapers, who will ask you about your dental care goals and any current oral health concerns you have, and perform your dental exam. Based on the information you give us, we will develop a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your dental care goals and have the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
