What Happens During The First Visit

Before your first dental visit, patients will need to fill out new patient forms and review their dental insurance (if applicable).

Creating a healthy, stable foundation is an important part of building a healthy smile. It is important that patients visit our office regularly for preventive care visits as well as practice a healthy oral hygiene routine at home. During your first visit, Dr. Van Gurp will review your medical and dental history as well as listen to any concerns or questions you may have regarding your oral health.

Our dental examinations typically include:

  • Periodontal exam (check for gum disease)
  • Oral cancer screening
  • TMJ exam
  • Dental exam (with x-rays when needed)
  • Teeth cleaning

After the comprehensive exam, Dr. Van Gurp may recommend any additional treatment you may need to maintain a healthy smile. Dr. Van Gurp is specially trained in many aspects of dentistry and can provide advanced solutions for missing teeth, sleep apnea, bite disorders, and crooked teeth. Dr. Van Gurp will work closely with each patient to determine which solutions best suit their dental needs, goal, budget, and lifestyle.
