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.
Best in town!
Wonderful staff and office. They always makes sure i am educated and comfortable in my appointments. They are super thorough which makes me feel even more confident about them!!
Cant even begin to say enough great things! Highly recommend!
The service is really great here! All of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Besides having a state of the art office, up-to-date technology, and a variety of spa services, their flexible scheduling is another unique aspect of Five Forks Dental Care. To date, they are the only dental office (of which I am aware) that schedules Saturday appointment!!!! This is a big deal for me since I am a UPS driver and typically work well past their daily closing hours during the Monday-Friday work week. Before, I would have to schedule a day off just to make my dental appointments, or go in before work. The latter really would stress me out because I didn't want to be late for work, which did happen when I was at another office. The Saturday appointments are consistent, convenient, and care-free (i.e., stress-free--just sticking with the 'c' alliteration here...lol). Please keep up the good work, and as Arnold S would say: "I'll be back!"
I loved the relaxation part of the cleaning! The paraffin wax was a nice touch.
