Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality personalized dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays of your teeth and mouth. If it has been more than six months since your last dental cleaning, it is likely that one of our hygienists (Janet or Robin) will want to give you a cleaning too. Then, Dr. Schlotman will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
Then, either during or after your first visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, and inspect your teeth and gums for cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these to your first appointment
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
- Contact information for your previous or concurrent dentist, if necessary
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.
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.

“There is a reason why I will drive 55 miles (one way) to see my dentist. He is caring and truly has the patient's interest in mind. If you need a procedure, he thinks twice and discusses at all the options with you before moving forward.”~ Aster L.
