Your Initial Dental Appointment Resources

What To Expect From Your Initial Visit


As a new patient, we would like to ensure that your first visit is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. At this visit, we will take digital photographs of your teeth and smile and any necessary x-rays. We will also make a 3-D scan of your teeth and review your scan, photos and x-rays with you so that you can make informed decisions about your dental care.

Next, Dr. Semerad or Dr. Larsen will perform a very thorough exam of your mouth and teeth as well as an oral cancer screening. You and the doctor will discuss your goals and preferences as well as review any findings from your exam. Together, we will work to create a customized treatment plan that meets your needs and goals.

Lastly, you will meet with one of our knowledgeable treatment coordinators to review fees and financial options and schedule your treatment as planned.


Consultation Visit

If you would prefer to discuss your concerns and questions before your new patient exam and x-rays, schedule a consultation at Legacy Dental. At this visit, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Semerad regarding your questions and concerns. Once all these have been answered, you will be given a chance to schedule a new patient exam.
