Your First Visit

Welcome to Semans Family Dentistry! At our practice, we are committed to providing top-quality care in a comfortable, warm environment. Our patients are our highest priority. That is why, after more than 35 years, we are proud to have developed lasting relationships with generations of families.

If you are a new patient or are curious about our practice, we are here to help. Below are a few things to know about your first visit to Semans Family Dentistry.

What to Expect During Your First Visit

Your visit will begin with an exam and series of digital X-rays. You will then have a consultation with Dr. Tom Semans. He will start by discussing your oral health, dental concerns, and goals. Afterward, he will analyze the digital X-rays of your teeth and mouth and will conduct a thorough exam. During your appointment, Dr. Semans will check for signs of:

  • Infection or inflammation
  • Tooth decay
  • Muscle tension in the face and neck
  • TMJ
  • Oral cancer

Dr. Semans will explain all of his findings in detail and will help you evaluate what steps to take next, if necessary.

You may choose to schedule an appointment with or without a dental cleaning. If you want to include a professional cleaning, we will be happy to accommodate you in our schedule. After your cleaning, we will provide a take-home hygiene kit and information on the best ways to keep your smile healthy between visits. We are proud to offer Sonicare toothbrush heads, PreviDent toothpaste, and several other helpful products to our patients.

What to Bring to Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first visit, please make sure you have a copy of your insurance card and ID. If you do not have insurance coverage, let us know before your appointment and we can recommend other financing options.

Before your appointment begins, we will ask that you fill out our new patient forms. These forms allow our team to be up to speed on your health and concerns as well as identify problems you may be at risk for and make proper recommendations. You can rest assured that we always keep this information 100% confidential.
