First Visit Expectations


 
 

We know that the first visit to any doctor’s office can be intimidating. We want your time with us to be as comfortable as possible. Here is what you can expect during your initial visit to Williamsburg Smile Design.   

During your first visit, our team will get to know you by asking some questions about your medical and oral health history. Please bring a list of any medications you may be taking and their dosages. Be sure to include all vitamins and over-the-counter supplements. 

We love to educate our patients and answer questions, so don’t be shy! We encourage you to ask questions and express your concerns or desires. 

Next, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam that may include x-rays and a non-invasive oral cancer screening. If no signs of periodontal disease are present, you will have a routine cleaning. If we notice signs of periodontal disease, we may reschedule the cleaning portion of your visit to allow for more time. 

Once your exam is complete, Dr. Mapes will review his findings with you and work on a treatment plan that reflects your wants and needs while giving you a functional, healthy smile. 

We offer many payment options and can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.
