Whether it’s your first visit to David Rice DDS in Elgin or your fiftieth, you can be confident that we will provide the highest dental care possible.
If it’s your first visit, then we’ll begin by reviewing the state of your dental health and discuss any concerns you might have. Experience has taught us that some patients are embarrassed by the state of their teeth, or worried about pain. If that sounds at all familiar, congratulations for overcoming these concerns and setting up an appointment.
We take as much time as necessary with each one of our patients. Cleanings and examinations are thorough, and we always make sure there is time for you to ask any questions you might have. We’ll also explain any recommendations for ongoing treatment.
Depending on the state of your teeth, you can expect a cleaning to take between half an hour and forty-five minutes. The hygienist will make an initial inspection of your teeth and gums, remove any tartar, and brush and polish your teeth. Then the dentist does a more in-depth exam.
At David Rice DDS in Elgin we want to know your dental health goals so we can help you reach them. Patients come to us from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne for general and family dentistry, and restorative dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
