What to Expect

Welcome! We are grateful you chose us to help you care for your dental health! Our goal is to provide you and your family with optimal dental care at every age. We endeavor to make you feel welcome and as comfortable as possible at every appointment in our office. We encourage you to ask questions and desire to provide you with thorough information to make the best decisions in your treatment.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

Dr. Vanik’s practice philosophy is to match your needs and desires to available, proven technologies both old and new, which will help you achieve your dental health goals. He puts a high priority on patient education so that you can make an informed choice between various treatment options.

Most new patients have a cleaning with our Dental Hygienist prior to a visit with the dentist. Dr. Vanik will review your history, listen carefully to your concerns and goals and discuss your treatment options.

New patient appointments typically include:

  • Digital dental x-rays
  • Periodontal screening for gum disease
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Professional dental cleaning

For Your First Visit, Please Bring the Following:

  • Your New Patient Forms
  • Your insurance card or information (we participate with many plans, except for HMO plans and Medicaid)
  • Have any recent xrays and records emailed to us, or bring them with you.

We look forward to meeting you!
