What to Expect at Your First Visit
$85 New Patient Special
Welcome to Charpentier Family Dentistry! For just $85, our new patients can receive a comprehensive
exam, oral cancer screening, Panorex images, and four cavity detecting x-rays. In addition,
we offer all new patients a personal tour of the office and a special welcome gift.
(Offer applies to patients without insurance only. A $310 value.)
At most dental offices, you check in and sit in the lobby. At Charpentier Family Dentistry, we take our new patient experience to the next level. We welcome you with a small gift, a tour of our state-of-the-art facility, and a unique comfort menu to help you relax. Enjoy freshly baked cookies in our comfortable lobby while we prepare to receive you for your premium dental services, or grab one on the way out!
Your first visit will include a few special steps to help us get to know you better. We will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any related anxieties you may have about dental care. To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations are and what your treatment needs might be. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth, will be addressed immediately!
Our mission is to help you look and feel your best through outstanding dental care. Your comfort is our priority! We have invested in state-of-the-art technology and spa-like amenities to make your experience surprisingly luxurious. Sit back, relax, and forget you're at the dentist's office! With Dr. Charpentier and Dr. Groth, you are in excellent hands.
We Don’t Rush Your Care
Please reserve approximately 90 minutes of your time for your first visit with us. First, we will take a set of x-rays to provide a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, including the roots of your teeth and your jawbones. A periodontal exam will follow to evaluate your gum health and to screen for gum recession. If your gums have no swelling or deep pockets, we will continue with a preventive cleaning. Finally, Dr. Charpentier or Dr. Groth will determine if you need any type of restorative treatment. We will even show you the findings from our high resolution intraoral camera!
The Building Blocks of Overall Health
Evidence of gum disease or inflammation requires us to take a different approach. Before regular oral care, your gums need to be healthy. The same day you visit, we’ll perform a full debridement and schedule a deep cleaning for another day. After all, your gums help hold your entire smile in place! Keeping them healthy is important to your overall wellness, cardiovascular system, and respiratory health, among others.
