Your First Visit

Making your first visit as comfortable, thorough and efficient as possible is important to us. We want you to come in and leave feeling great so that you’ll be happy to come back! Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by one of our warm and friendly staff.

Once we’ve gathered a few records, Dr. Hayden will discuss your current condition with you. Together we can create a healthy, effective plan that meets your dental and personal goals. Prioritizing and staging your care gives you the smile you need within a budget and timeframe that fits your situation.

Above all, we go beyond expectations to make you feel relaxed and safe. Your physical and emotional comfort remain our focus regardless of treatment goals.
