Your First Visit

At your initial appointment, you can expect to go through the following assessment to better understand your medical background and dentistry goals:

  • Evaluation – Meet with Dr. Thanik for a thorough examination. He will carefully evaluate your condition and put together a customized treatment plan. At this time, he will happily address any questions you have.
  • Treatment Plan – Review your entire treatment plan with our treatment coordinator. She will carefully explain the plan and help answer any questions you may have. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss financing options at this time as well. She will also help you determine your insurance benefits as they apply to your treatment.
  • Set Appointment – Once all of your questions have been answered, you’ll have the opportunity to schedule your next visit. We offer a variety of scheduling options during the week and will be happy to help find something that works the best for you.

Cancellation Policy

Since we reserve time especially for our patients, we ask that you please give us 2 business days’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. This will give us the opportunity to offer that appointment time to another patient who is in need of periodontal care. Thank you for your understanding and appreciation of this policy.
