Bellingham Family Dentistry | Dentist Bellingham WA

Your First Visit

Bellingham Family Dentistry

Your new patient appointment is an opportunity for us to get to know you.  We conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and radiographs so that we can evaluate your oral health and determine your unique treatment needs.  What is especially important to us is to learn about your personal preferences and goals.  We collaborate with you to discuss what treatment options are available to you so that we can help you create your own individual treatment plan and answer any questions that you may have. 

At a future visit, one of our hygienists will clean your teeth and gums and help you establish a plan to prevent dental and periodontal disease.

For your first appointment:

  • Please bring your insurance card (if applicable)

Regular visits promote a healthy mouth

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dental office every six months for cleanings and check-ups.  We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you are preparing for your initial visit to our office, please anticipate that your appointment can last between 60 and 90 minutes.  Dental cleaning appointments typically last 60 minutes.
