Your First Visit
We would like to tell you what you can expect on your first visit to our office. We will take the time to give you the personal attention you deserve and conduct a complete, comprehensive examination. This exam will include necessary x-rays allowing us to diagnose the condition of your mouth, teeth and gums. We also complete an oral cancer exam, as recommended by the American Cancer Society. We chart the existing condition of each tooth, such as: decay, fillings, crowns, fractured teeth, irregular formation, rotation, shifting of your teeth, or excessive wear. Dr. Hapney will complete an oral, facial and joint muscle exam, including an examination of the jaw joint. Our dental hygienist will measure the gum tissue around each tooth to detect periodontal disease and recession. We will also take photos to use as a record of existing conditions and to aid in planning future treatment. In most instances, your dental condition will be determined at this visit, and if needed, a suitable treatment plan will be discussed with you.
Our new patient registration forms are available on the Patient Forms page to fill out prior to your initial visit. If you decide not to fill out the new patient form online, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete registration forms. We look forward to your visit.
Being new to the area I needed a dentist. I was so happy to find Five Forks Dental. Dr. Hapney and her team are so friendly and so professional.
Five Forks Dental Care is the perfect place if you expect perfection in your smile!!!!!! I have been a patient here for 2 years now and it has been the most positive experience. The atmosphere is calming and enjoyable (even though it's an nerve wrecking process getting dental work done). They made sure I was warm (offered me a warm neck wrap and blanket) which I of course accepted. The entire staff is kind and really care about my comfort! One of the staff members even strolled my baby around to keep her calm while I was getting my dental work done. I am finally proud to smile in pictures and I am no longer self conscious about my teeth all thanks to the comfort and perfectionism of Five Forks Dental Care and staff!!!! I have never had such a detailed dentist before and it's exactly what I needed and wanted!!!! I wanted someone that cares about my teeth as much as I do and that's exactly what this office did!! I will never ever see any other dentist!!!!!
Love Dr. Hapney and all of the staff. They offer not only an array of services, but with exceptional care and knowledge. Highly recommend!
This is the best dental care around.
Dr Hapney is extremely thorough. I appreciate all her knowledge.
The results are always fantastic on anything this office does. Dental care and cleaning is second to none.
Dr Hapney is also helping me with a sleep apnea issue which I am so grateful to have this problem addressed.
It is also a beautiful office with a comfortable environment. It is easy to be a patient at this practice.
Everyone is extremely nice and professional.
Thank you so much for all you all do!
I want to thank you and your wonderful, caring and amazing staff! I have never felt so comfortable, nor cared for. I can now smile with confidence!!! You're a great dentist and you always make sure the patient was first. Thank you!
