Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
During your first visit, we will review your dental and medical history forms, and take X-rays and photos of your teeth and mouth. Then either Dr. Pendergrast or Dr. Summerfelt will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, examine your teeth, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions you may have.
At your next visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, and inspect your teeth and gums for early signs of gingivitis or periodontitis (gum disease).
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment
- Your completed patient information form

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends a visit to your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit our office, please remember your checkup appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
