First Visit

The staff members of Frederick Dental are dedicated to providing the best dental care possible to all our patients. This begins in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere designed to help calm your anxieties about visiting the dentist. Expect on-time scheduling, eliminating long wait times between patients. With our digital office procedures, new patients will not have paper forms to fill out. Check-in and checkout are made easy for your convenience. If you need help with anything, just ask one of the staff members. Our goal is to provide you with service and treatment that will make your visit pleasant and productive. We want you to leave with a smile that is as much about feeling good about your visit as it is about having a healthy mouth.

During Your Appointment

The initial visit includes time with the hygienist. First digital x-rays are taken; these provide valuable information about the condition of your teeth. After the x-rays, your teeth will be checked manually for decay. Your gums will be measured as well. This procedure is painless and provides the hygienist information needed to determine what method of cleaning or periodontal therapy will be best for your mouth. This also allows the hygienist to identify problem areas with receding gums and food traps you may be unaware of.

When the cleaning is completed, Dr. Frederick will review your records, examine your mouth and explain the findings to you. We allow plenty of time for you to ask questions and talk about any concerns you may have about your oral health. We want all of our patients to be fully informed about their oral health so if you have questions, do not hesitate to ask. We are happy to provide answers.

If more dental work is needed, we will take time to explain the procedures to you so that you will have a clear understanding of what needs to be done. We will also talk to you about how to improve your oral hygiene if necessary or maintain it. Good oral health is necessary for your best general health and overall well-being. Contact Frederick Dental today to schedule your first visit with us.
