MCDC 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 dental center while providing the best care possible.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
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.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
Your First Appointment
When you arrive at the dental center for your first appointment, you will be asked to read some information and provide some personal history:
- A form confirming that you have read and understand MCDC’s Cancellation policy, Consent for Treatment acknowledgment, and your right to privacy notification.
- A patient information and health history form that we will scan into your permanent patient record.
You can save time at your appointment by downloading and printing these forms and completing them before you arrive at the clinic. Simply click on the following links to do so:
Your first visit is all about you — your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, your care team will review your dental and medical history forms, take radiographs and intraoral photographs, and complete a comprehensive examination. The doctor will meet with you to discuss your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and create your own individual treatment plan.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- A complete list of your medications
- Name and phone number of your primary provider
To register as a patient you may either call 877.313.6232 or you may use our online registration form. Our staff will contact you to schedule your first appointment once you have submitted the form.
