New Patient Information

New Patient Exam

We’ll reserve plenty of time for your first visit. Alice or Dorothy will send you a welcome packet prior to your appointment, then fill out your forms for you when you arrive. They’ll ask about your current dental concerns so that we know what you want to address.

You’ll meet Dr. Devlin. He’ll take time to get to know you personally, discuss your goals for your smile, and review your medical history. A comprehensive exam will follow in which Dr. Devlin will assess your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function and looks for signs of dental trauma, wear, or instability. He’ll check the health of your gum tissue and examine your teeth, and we’ll take appropriate X-rays and photos.

Following your exam, Dr. Devlin will present an overview of his findings. We’ll schedule a complimentary consultation appointment to discuss your next steps.

Dental cleanings are typically performed at a subsequent appointment, but can occur at your initial exam upon your request.
