What to Expect at Your First Visit

Your initial visit to Summit Dental will include:

  • A review of both your dental and medical history
  • An examination of your teeth, gums, head, and neck
  • Appropriate digital x-rays of your mouth
  • Instructions on how to care for your teeth and gums at home
  • A cleaning and polish (when scheduled in addition with one of our hygienists)

You will be greeted at the front by our wonderful patient care coordinator Marni.  She will help get you checked in and answer any questions you may have.

We offer complimentary fresh tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or cider while you wait in our cozy lounge.  The good news is, however, we don’t expect our patients to wait!  Our office does not overbook, so you will rarely have to wait more than a minute or two for your appointment or treatment to begin.  We dedicate our time to doing quality work and meet the individual needs of each patient.

If you are visiting us for a cleaning, our hygienists Kathy or Natalie will meet you out front and take you back to your chair.  If there is anything we can do to make you more comfortable, let us know.  We can provide blankets and also put in a movie for you.  If you will be seeing Dr. Hagedorn for a treatment, his assistant Julie will help make you at home.  Many of our digital x-rays can even be done right in your chair.

On your way out, don’t forget to grab a drink to go or pick up a tube of the all-natural lip balm we have made especially for our patients.
