Your First Visit

From the first day you join our dental family, we will cater to your dental needs. Prior to the new patient visit, please fill complete the comprehensive medical and dental history online, since it is important in reviewing up-to-date information about your total health. Inform the doctors if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill. Also tell us the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking - whether prescription or over-the-counter products - and the name of your physician. Inform the doctors of any changes in your health or medications. This information will help them select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.

Our comprehensive adult new patient visit is typically 90 minutes. A member of our clinical team takes digital dental x-rays, intraoral photos; performs CariVu laser cavity detection, periodontal exam (evaluation of the gums), Velscope oral cancer screening, and a complete oral exam. Dr. Helton or Dr. Beavers explains the diagnosis and treatment plan and a member of our clinical team will review the best way to fit your personalized dental care into your budget. Patients will have a thorough understanding of their dental health and dental care goals after visiting our office.

Regular Checkups

We encourage regular checkups for individuals age two and up. Most people find that it is valuable to have a checkup at least every six months so Dr. Helton or Dr. Beavers can:

  • Check for problems that you might not see or feel
  • Find early signs of decay
  • Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable

Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, the doctors check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. At each visit, the doctors also check old fillings and restorations because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.

Regular checkup appointments typically take 30 to 60 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
