Office Visits

Our team is committed to providing you with safe, caring, high-quality dental care.  We also understand that some patients (adults and children) are anxious about visiting the dentist and we promise to be attentive to your needs.  Our goal is to provide the best care possible with the greatest ease and comfort.

To ensure that we properly diagnose your dental needs, your first visit with us will include a comprehensive exam.  Our clinical team will review your dental and medical history, and take several x-rays of your teeth, jaw, and mouth.  During the comprehensive exam, Dr. Baughman will examine your dental health, discuss your x-rays, obtain your personal dental goals, and a personalized dental treatment plan.  Rest assured, Dr. Baughman will take time to answer your questions and the clinical staff will schedule your next dental appointment with one of our hygienists.

At your next visit, our hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, check your teeth and gums for any cavities, look for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, or any other areas of concern or marked improvements!  Finally, our staff will make any additional appointments needed to continue your treatment plan.

Things to bring to your dental appointment.

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.  Since we provide comprehensive dental care, please remember that appointments may last between 45 and 90 minutes.
