Your First Visit

 Your first visit is all about you your comfort, your happiness, and your dental health.

We Make It Easy

Going to the dentist can be an overwhelming experience, especially first-time visits. Let us put your concerns and anxieties to rest. Our goal is to make the patient experience comfortable.

Our goal is to provide every patient with:

  • A clean, inviting environment
  • A warm, friendly greeting when you call or come in
  • Doctors and staff who treat you with respect
  • Quality, affordable dental care for you and your family
  • A clear explanation of every aspect of your visit
  • Our sincere appreciation for choosing and recommending this office

What to Expect

The dentist will perform a complete oral examination and discuss any treatment you may need. The examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer.

  • A review of your complete dental and medical history forms.
  • Complete X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
  • A cleaning by one of our hygienists, which includes an exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, as well as checking for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay. The hygienist will also polish your teeth after the cleaning.
  • Once Dr. Hyde has reviewed your dental and medical health history forms, he will do a thorough dental exam. Afterwards Dr. Hyde will provide you with a dental consultation and information about any additional dental treatments you, or your child, may need. During this time Dr. Hyde will answer any questions you may have.

Your first appointment will take approximately 1 hour. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

What to Bring

To make your visit as pleasant and brief as possible, there are a few things you should bring with you.

If you’ve had dental x-rays in the last six months, please bring them to your first appointment. If you don’t have them, plan on biting down on that little cardboard thingy. New x-rays will be taken.

With just a few simple forms, we’ll ask for relevant medical history, any medications you might be taking, your dental history, and any dental insurance coverage you may have.

Want to get a head start? Download the new patient forms and bring them with you.

Please call (716) 823-2898, and our friendly office staff will be ready to help you schedule an appointment.

Dr. Hyde and his staff welcome any questions you may have and they are always available to listen to your concerns.
