"Both my husband and I were very pleased with the entire office! Jennifer took my call to get us both scheduled at the same time for a cleaning. Both our hygienists were caring and professional. Dr. Portacci was very careful to discuss treatment thoroughly, and we would definitely recommend this office to our friends and family."

Thank you for choosing our office for all your dental needs.  We have created a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive.

What to Expect at Your First Visit

During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your current desires.  When you arrive for your first visit, please be sure to arrive on time and to provide a list of any medications you are taking and to complete all insurance and health information forms.

Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Comprehensive Exam

Your initial dental appointment will last approximately one hour.  Our doctor will perform a thorough exam and in most cases, one of our hygienists will also clean your teeth. Generally, X-rays will be taken, allowing the doctor to examine your mouth for teeth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer.  These diagnostic records will help your doctor provide an evaluation outlining any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.  We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.

Open Communication

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist.  Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
