We understand that going to a new dentist for the first time can feel intimidating, but we don’t want it to be.
Battle Creek Family Dentistry is committed to treating our patients like they were family - with honest, helpful staff and a listening ear.
Your First Appointment
During your first visit with us, you will review your insurance information and patient forms with our receptionist. One of our staff members will then treat you to a tour of our facility so that you can be familiar with the level of care we provide to our patients.
You will then be seen by one of our Registered Dental Hygienists, who will review your medical and dental history, take any necessary x-rays and screen for gum disease prior to a preventive cleaning.
Dr. Long will perform a comprehensive examination and oral cancer screening. He will then discuss any findings that he may have, as well as your personal concerns regarding your oral health. If necessary, we will compile a treatment plan that outlines all procedures that need to be completed.
Is there anything else we can help you with? You can view our Frequently Asked Questions here or fill out New Patient Forms here. If you have any questions, or to schedule your first appointment, we invite you to call us today!
