Our team is committed to providing you with safe, caring, high-quality dental care. We also understand that some patients (adults and children) are anxious about visiting the dentist and we promise to be attentive to your needs. Our goal is to provide the best care possible with the greatest ease and comfort.
To ensure that we properly diagnose your dental needs, your first visit with us will include a comprehensive exam. Our clinical team will review your dental and medical history, and take several x-rays of your teeth, jaw, and mouth. During the comprehensive exam, Dr. Baugham will examine your dental health, discuss your x-rays, obtain your personal dental goals, and a personalized dental treatment plan. Rest assured, Dr. Baugham will take time to answer your questions.
Our hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, check your teeth and gums for any cavities, look for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, or any other areas of concern or marked improvements! Finally, our staff will make any additional appointments needed to continue your treatment plan.
What to Bring to Your First Appointment
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first visit. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Since we provide comprehensive dental care, please remember that appointments may last between 45 and 90 minutes.
Office hours are by appointment and we do value your time. This office is a private practice dental office and not a dental “clinic.” Appointment time is reserved for you alone. Where appropriate, we prefer to schedule longer appointments so we can complete as much needed dental treatment as possible during one appointment. We feel this type of scheduling will cause minimal disruption to your daily schedule and will provide efficiency in completing your dental care. When you make an appointment, please be sure that you will be able to keep it.
If you cannot make an appointment as scheduled, please allow the office 24 hours notice. There may be a charge of $50 per hour of scheduled time. If you have any questions or need to schedule, give our office a call at 470-410-9774.
