Your First Visit

Baker & Graham is committed to providing you and your family with the very best in safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.

What to Expect

Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health. During your first visit, the hygienist will review your dental and medical history forms and discuss any concerns that you may have. She will also take necessary radiographs of your teeth and perform a screening for gum disease. After gathering the information needed, we will determine what type of cleaning is best for you. The doctor will also perform a routine exam, including an oral cancer screening, and discuss your dental wants and needs. Your first appointment should last an hour and half to two hours.

What to Bring

Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:

Your completed patient information form.
Your insurance card
Photo ID
