Your First Visit at River Valley Dentistry
Your first visit is not only about our team getting to know you, but it's also about you getting to know our team. In the time we spend together, we encourage you to ask questions, express your concerns, and share with us anything we should know to make your care as individual as you are.
Part of getting to know you and providing safe, personalized support involves reviewing your medical history. Certain medical conditions and medications can influence your treatment protocols. You will be asked to provide a list of your medications and their dosages (including vitamins and supplements).
Next, a full-mouth series of x-rays and a comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw will be performed, including a non-invasive oral cancer screening.
You're in Great Hands
If you haven’t been to a dentist in a long while, please don’t worry. You’ve made an important decision and there is no need to feel guilty!
Once your entire exam is completed, Dr. Hammontree will talk with you about his findings. Together you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental and personal requirements. We can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you the smile you need in a timeframe you can afford.
Finally, we want you to know we will go above and beyond to make you feel relaxed and safe. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional comfort is as well. So, come in, recline and unwind, because you’re in great hands.Schedule Online
Insurance and Financing
We believe quality dental care should be affordable and accessible to everyone. Because oral health is so important, we do everything we can to remove financial barriers and help the greatest number of patients possible. We accept most insurance providers or for those without dental insurance, we offer an in-house dental savings plan and accept third-party payment alternatives.Insurance and Financial Information
