We welcome you to Gentle Dental. Your first visit will usually consist of an examination and review of treatment options. Most treatments can be done or started the same day as your initial consultation. If you have a complex medical history or have a treatment option that requires preparation, you may need to schedule a second appointment to provide the treatment or continue the treatment plan.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:
- A list of your current medications
- X-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable
- If you have dental insurance, please bring proof of insurance
- IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
Please alert our office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (such as high blood pressure, diabetes, rheumatic fever, artificial heart valves and joints, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, anticoagulant therapy, aspirin etc.).
Please request that x-rays from your former dentist or physician be sent to our office. If there isn’t enough time before your appointment, please bring them with you to your visit. If additional x-rays are needed, they can be taken at our office.

We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day. We will try our best to stay on schedule and minimize all waiting. We perform all types of dental services, and sometimes a complex procedure could run over the allocated time. Emergency cases also arise and sometimes cause delays. We appreciate your patience as we work to maintain our schedules and honor everyone’s time.
