TotallySmiles is excited about the opportunity to provide you with your necessary dental care and procedures. We welcome patients of all ages to visit our Gaithersburg MD dentist office. We understand that visiting a new dentist’s office can be an anxiety-provoking experience for some patients.

To help you best prepare for your upcoming appointment, we have provided some additional information on what you can expect during your first visit to our office. Learn more below.


What To Expect During Your First Dental Appointment

Whether this will be your first dentist appointment at our office or your first dentist appointment of all time, you can expect to be treated with respect and compassion during your visit to TotallySmiles. We are here to help you, not to judge you, when you require necessary dental procedures to maintain or improve your dental health.

Every dentist appointment at our office begins with a brief meeting with our friendly front-desk staff.  They will ensure that they have all required patient forms on file for you to ensure that our doctors have all the necessary information to proceed with providing you with care.

If you have not filled out your required patient forms beforehand, arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to make sure you have plenty of time to fill them out prior to your visit with our doctors. Once all of your documentation is on file, you will be called back to our dental exam rooms.

A dental cleaning is usually performed during your first dental appointment. One of our experienced dental hygienists will examine the current state of your smile and thoroughly remove any plaque or tartar buildup from your dental structures. They may ask you questions about your oral health or medical history. Be prepared to provide us with any information necessary so that we can have a holistic view of your dental health needs and goals.

Following your dental cleaning, one of our doctors will come in and visit you. During this time, you are free to ask any questions or voice any concerns you have with your teeth, gums, or jawbone.

Our doctors are highly experienced dentists and are here to provide you with dental treatment plans tailored specifically for your needs. They will examine your dental structures, and provide you with a personalized treatment plan to address any dental concerns discovered or discussed during your appointment. Then, you will be free to go!
