It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this website, remember that we are a family focused dental practice who cares about your comfort, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors and bring your dental insurance card to ensure a smooth check-in process. We look forward to your first visit.

Your first experience in our office is the most valuable time that you will spend with us and during this time, our Columbia dentists and staff will do the following with you:

  • Review all medical and dental histories
  • Take appropriate radiographs (dental x-rays)
  • Complete an oral cancer screening
  • Complete a periodontal evaluation
  • Perform an intra-oral exam.

After we have completed these procedures, we will review the information gathered and share with you. Together we will decide on the course of treatment that will best serve your individual dental goals and needs.
