We know your time is valuable, so we will always see you promptly. If you have a 2:00 appointment, you will be seen at 2:00. When you arrive in our reception area, you’ll be greeted by a staff member who knows you by name. No sign in sheet, no closed window – just a familiar smiling face. You’ll notice the difference right away: a relaxing atmosphere, minimal wait time, and a doctor and staff who actually take time to answer any and all questions you may have.
Our treatment rooms are equipped to put you at ease. Whether it’s TV, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or light sedation, we will provide whatever it takes to make your dental visit as pleasant as possible.
As a patient, you have more exciting treatment options than ever before. We believe the best decisions are made by well-informed patients who understand how the choices they make today affect their long-term dental health. We’ll take time to explain your condition and procedures, and answer all your questions. Patients often tell us they learn something new each time they visit. Many say they’ve learned more about their oral health from Dr. Clayton than from any other dentist they’ve seen. That kind of patient satisfaction tells us we’ve created the dental practice we envisioned from the start.
Your first visit will give you and Dr. Clayton time to lay the groundwork for achieving your goals. The first visit lasts approximately one and a half hours. We will review your dental and medical histories, take necessary x-rays, evaluate your oral health, and clean your teeth, and then Dr. Clayton will do a thorough examination. Each tooth will be examined carefully, as will bone and surrounding soft tissue. Depending on your previous frequency of dental visits, further preventative treatment might be recommended.
You’ll notice the difference right away: a relaxing atmosphere, no long wait time, and a doctor and staff who will actually take time to answer any and all questions you may have.
Your treatment options might be discussed at your initial visit. However, if your needs are complex, a separate appointment might be necessary.
