At Shipp Family Dentistry we're committed to providing you and your family with the best possible dental care. We understand that many people are nervous about vising the dentist and want to do what we can to relieve your anxiety. It is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
That first visit is all about you: your needs, your comfort, and your health. During your visit, we will review your dental and medical history, gather diagnostic information by taking X-rays and intra oral photos of your teeth and mouth. Our dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, and inspect your teeth and gums for any early signs of tooth decay, existing cavities, or gingivitis. Dr. Shipp will also meet with you to do a complete oral examination, she will create an individualized dental treatment plan with you and answer any questions that you may have.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Be sure to bring the following information with you to your appointment.
- Completed patient information forms
- Any insurance cards
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
