How long will my first visit last? Will I receive a cleaning?
Whether you’re visiting us for the first time for a routine six-month cleaning and checkup or you haven’t been to a dentist in years – we welcome you! We’re happy that you’ve chosen Corn Family Dentistry for your care and that you’ve taken the first steps to visit our office.
First visits typically last around 60 minutes, and Dr. Corn spends much of that time getting to know you, discussing your concerns and goals for your oral health with you, and examining your mouth and teeth. If we don’t find any concerns with gum disease, we’ll try to complete your first cleaning during that time.
For patients who’ve been away from the dentist for a while, please know that we never make judgments. We understand that life happens, and we’re glad you’re here. If it's been some time since your last cleaning, we may need additional time to complete a more thorough cleaning for you to get you back on track. In this case, your cleaning would be scheduled at your next appointment.
In either case, we’re so glad you’re our patient, and we look forward to building a relationship with you and helping you achieve optimum oral health and a beautiful smile. Welcome to Corn Family Dentistry!
