We are always absolutely thrilled to welcome new patients into our smile family! We love living and working in the Reno area and find it endlessly gratifying to serve our communities with the best dentistry can offer. If you are new to the area or just looking for smile care for yourself or your family, please check us out. We’d love for you to come for a visit and discover all we have to offer patients one to one hundred!
Your first visit is one of the most important visits of your time with us here at Summit Smiles. This visit will take longer than most (a little more than two hours) because we want to give you the best dental exam of your life! This comprehensive initial exam is how we discover your baseline – and any problems that may have been lurking in your mouth. It also allows us to fully educated you on what is going on, especially if you have any foundational problems such as gum disease or TMD. We believe that it is important to take care of these types of problems before you begin any cosmetic or restorative work. If we left them alone and moved forward with other procedures, your work wouldn’t last, and that’s not good for your trust in us or your budget.
Our dentists are very hands-on and will perform the exam along with your hygienist. The exam includes digital x-rays, intraoral camera exam, measurements of gum pockets, head and neck exam, and a free VELscope screening to detect any signs of oral cancer.
Once the exam is completed, our team will discuss their findings, including whether they have seen any risk factors for TMD, sleep apnea, or gum disease. If you need work, we will discuss and develop a treatment plan with you. We never tell you what to do or how quickly to do it. We simply inform you of the issues and your options. The pace and final decisions are up to you.
The final step is a cleaning and hygiene experience with one of our highly-trained and gentle hygienists so you can leave with a new sparkle and a spring in your step.
Feel free to take care of your medical history and insurance forms ahead of time. It’s easy and efficient to fill them out online. It’s safe, secure, and extremely convenient!
We love our patient family and think they deserve the best – and that doesn’t just mean quality dentistry. It also means that we pamper every patient and offer decadent, spa-like extras like herbal neck wraps, blankets, and TV with wireless headphones. We also offer soothing paraffin hand dips, complimentary lip balm, as well as coffee service, water, and snacks. Who knew going to the dentist could feel like such a treat?
