As a family based dental practice, we welcome all individuals and families! If you would like to become a new patient at our office, please click the following links and complete the forms online.  Completing these forms will allow us to be better prepared for your arrival, be more focused on you and be as efficient as possible with your time.  

Forewarning: Yes, there are a lot of forms.  Completing all forms is essential to excellent and timely care during your appointment.  Completing these forms will take 20-30 minutes per patient.  It will take longer if we wait until you are already in our office, so please take advantage of these online forms.  If you have dental insurance please have your insurance card and subscriber's (policyholder) general demographics and contact information available before starting these forms. 

New Patient forms for Adults (18 years on up). 

New Patient forms for Infants/ Toddlers/ Children/ Adolescents (0-17 years & 364 days).  Please repeat these forms for each child you would like to be a new patient with us.

If you would like to transfer your x-rays to us from your previous dentist, please complete this form. FYI- If your x-rays are older than one year, standard of care is to acquire new x-rays.  Please don't bother attaining your old x-rays if they are greater than a year old. 

We are proud of our patients and occasionally we love to show you off! Whether it's a fun visit, a smile transformation, joining the Cavity Free Club or otherwise, if you are willing to be a part of our Facebook page with pictures please complete this form.  We will always ask you ahead of time if we would like to post any photos of you or your family.

What To Expect
When you arrive, you will be greeted by Kelly first at the front office.  Kelly will review the forms you have completed online and attain a few more signatures.  Then, she will notify the team that you are ready for your appointment! We start by reviewing your medical history, taking your vitals including blood pressure, and some simple photography.  After that we acquire any necessary x-rays, get to know you a little more, assess your oral health starting with the health of your gum tissue and then clean your teeth if indicated.  At the end you will meet Dr Dad (Nelson) or Dr Ross to determine what treatment will be needed after your first visit.  Before leaving you will meet with Sue who will discuss scheduling and any financial arrangments that will be needed.  We want you to have a clear idea of the cost of your care; we don't like surprises any more than you do!  We look forward to your visit and making you a part of our dental "family."
