Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with 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.
Your First Visit is All About You – Your Comfort, Your Happiness, and Your Health.
To ensure that all your needs are understood, we reserve 90 minutes of time to devote to each new patient, so we have plenty of time to listen. You will first visit with Dr. Gay to discuss the goals you have regarding your oral health and any concerns you may have regarding dentistry. This allows him to learn about your relevant medical and dental history, which may offer opportunities to prevent dental problems in the future. Most importantly, we start with good communication and a shared understanding of your goals.
After your initial consultation, Dr. Gay will conduct a thorough examination. If the findings show little or no problem, your condition will be reviewed during the first visit. If there are issues that require further study on his part, Dr. Gay will review all of the available data to develop a treatment plan. You will have a follow-up conference in about a week to review your oral condition and Dr. Gay will recommend treatment options in a thoughtful and organized fashion.
The best way we can help you understand your oral health is to show you! We’ve invested in state-of-the-art imaging technology, like digital X-rays and photographs, because seeing is believing!
Bring Your Smile, But Also Remember to Bring These With You to Your First Appointment:
- Your completed patient information form

Regular Checkups are an Important Part of Maintaining a Healthy Smile!
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 and for an oral cancer screening.
Some patients need and benefit from cleanings more often.
We understand that you have a busy schedule so we make every effort to on time for your appointment.
