Your First Visit

See Our Office

What should I expect at my consultation appointment?

Our patient coordinator, will call you to have a discussion about what you’re looking for. When we make you an appointment, she will mail you some important material that helps us fine tune how to best take exceptional care of you. This includes a health history and some questions about what you are looking for in a dental office, as well as your goals for your smile and health.

At the consultation appointment, we will take you on a tour of the office, pointing out some of the aspects of our practice that makes us different. We will spend time with you discussing your hopes and dreams for your mouth. The best way to communicate dentistry is with photographs. Dr. Rader will meet you and do a visual examination of your mouth and take photographs to help you to understand your options. We will then discuss your specific concerns and goals and let you know what your options are. You will find that we take the time to listen to you!

After the consultation and examination, you should have a clear understanding of:

  • What we see in your mouth.
  • What it means.
  • What are your options.

Then it’s up to you to decide what you want to do!

Our practice is probably not like any dental practice you’ve ever visited. Our focus is strictly on providing the best experience possible for our patients. This is what we believe all patients deserve:

  • To be given (to new patients and also periodically) a full dental assessment/full treatment plan in order to accomplish the level of dental health and aesthetics the patient wants to achieve.
  • To be treated with the respect and dignity in a guilt free environment, especially related to any dental health issues the patient is now experiencing.
  • To have all treatment completed in comfortable manner; to have options for sedation as needed
  • To have all treatment completed on time in least amount of appointments possible.
  • To understand the difference between health orientated and cosmetic orientated treatment.
  • To have access to the best materials, laboratories, technology, and techniques available in dentistry today.
  • For all treatment to be driven and guided for benefit of patient and not for benefit of insurance company and for dental office to file all paperwork and explain all dental benefits to patient.
  • To provide multiple payment options as well as long term payment plans.
  • All cost to be fully explained and in writing.
  • To receive guarantee, both in terms of results and in terms of time guarantees.
