Your First Visit
Welcome to RT Dental! We’re glad you’ve chosen to be part of our dental family, and it is our goal to make you feel at home when you visit our office. You may wonder what to expect from your first visit with us, and we’re glad you asked!
When you walk into our office, you’ll be greeted warmly, and we’ll go over any paperwork with you that we need you to fill out.
Next, you’ll meet one of our friendly hygienists. Our team is very experienced and gentle, and our hygienists take the time to go over your health history with you and discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health before your cleaning. We also take x-rays of your teeth at this time for Dr. Richard Tom to review.
You will meet with Dr. Tom for a comprehensive examination at your first visit. The first thing you’ll notice about Dr. Tom is his passion for people. He loves talking with patients so he can get know them on a personal level. His friendly and laid-back demeanor makes him easy to talk to.
He will review the x-rays and photos we’ve taken of your teeth and discuss any treatment needs that may be necessary. We also use this time to educate you about your oral health so you can make decisions about the treatment procedures that are best for your needs.
If you have periodontal concerns, our hygienist may recommend additional cleaning appointments for you to get your oral health back on track. If your teeth and mouth are healthy, we’ll schedule your next six-month cleaning checkup.
Our goal is that you feel welcome and comfortable at your first visit and every appointment after that.
We look forward to meeting you!
