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.
Great service & very relaxing. However, my face is broke out now. I don’t think my skin reacted well with the products used. I would’ve loved to have gone back.
Five Forks dentistry did a full mouth restoration on me in 2016. I have been in the dentistry business for 30 yrs. After researching the area upon moving here I was fortunate to find Dr Hapney she has an excellent caring staff and Dr Hapney stays updated on all the new procedures and materials. I now have the most beautiful teeth and couldn't be happier. Thank you so much to Dr Hapney and her staff.
I had my first official cleaning with Five Fork Dental. I had been to the office for a consultation at which time I was treated to a wonderful hot paraffin wax hand treatment. On both visits, the entire office staff was warm and welcoming. I felt like I was well taken care of with a thorough exam and had the full attention of both the Dental Hygienist and Dr. Vance. Dr. Vance spent quite a bit of time with me explaining some concerns and a treatment plan. I am very happy with Five Fork Dental and have finally found my dental care home!
It was my first visit to the dentist in years. Kristy was awesome and made me feel very welcomed and at home. Glad to have found such a great place.
Fabulous hygienist and dentist. The ladies in the office are always friendly and professional. Love my new dentist office!
