New Patients Welcome
What to Expect on Your First Visit
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. By educating yourself to describe your symptoms you may feel relieved of any anxiety about your visit. Take some time to familiarize yourself with Dr. Simlote and his friendly staff!
As part of your first visit we complete a detailed and customized examination of your oral health in order to provide you with the best care possible. Comprehensive examinations are done on every new patient as part of the first visit. A treatment plan will be made on a subsequent visit where patients will be informed of required treatment and if necessary Intraoral Pictures will be taken to explain in detail about the treatment plan.
