Office Visits

Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and 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 we provide the best possible care.

Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health

During your first visit, Dr. Orticelli will meet with you and review your dental and medical history as well as answer questions you may have. The doctor will take intraoral photographs and direct the hygienist to take any appropriate X-rays. The hygienist will assess your periodontal health and clean and polish your teeth so that Dr. Orticelli can then complete a full dental exam, including an oral cancer screening, and a facial muscle and TMJ exam.

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

  • Your completed patient information form
  • Your insurance card

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!

The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
