First Dental Visit

Your comfort and satisfaction are important to us.

  • Please come in 15 minutes before your appointment so you have time to complete your paperwork.
  • Save time: Access your new patient paperwork now. By filling out your forms now, you can save time in the office later.

Initial Comprehensive Exam & X-rays

You will meet with your hygienist and Dr. Badlani to talk about your medical history. If you have any oral health worries or fears, you can feel comfortable sharing them with him or her. Your comfort is most important, so we encourage you to ask questions. Next, your dentist will likely examine your teeth, gums, mouth, and X-rays.  This is an ideal way to learn the status of your oral health and to learn how your dental team can help you.


You may not receive a teeth cleaning at your first appointment. Each new patient relationship often starts with an initial exam so your dental team can understand your needs and concerns first, then tailor a hygiene treatment plan specifically for you. This way, you’ll get the most out of your cleaning appointments and the time and attention you deserve.


Your dentist will discuss the comprehensive dental treatment plan developed specifically for you. While your dentist will provide the expert guidance you deserve, your questions are always welcome and you always have the final say in your treatment.


Your treatment plan is designed to prevent small issues from getting bigger and more expensive. It will address the problems that are bothering you now and may also identify others that could impact your long-term oral health.


After you’ve talked with your dentist, our office manager will answer any questions or concerns you might have, including the payment options available and how your dental insurance works.


Our goal is to make each visit as pleasant and convenient as possible.
