First Visit Expectations

your comfort is our priority

We know the first visit to any doctor’s office can be intimidating so we want your time with us to be as comfortable as possible. During your first visit, our team will get to know you by asking some questions about your medical and oral health history. Please bring a list of any medications you may be taking and their dosages, including all vitamins and supplements. We love to educate our patients and answer questions, so don’t be shy! We encourage you to ask questions and express your concerns or desires.

Next, we will perform a dental health scan and a comprehensive oral exam to assess your periodontal status, teeth, and jaw. This exam may include x-rays, periodontal probing, charting of your existing restorations, and a non-invasive oral cancer screening. If no signs of periodontal disease are present, you will have a routine cleaning. If we notice signs of periodontal disease, we may reschedule the cleaning portion of your visit to allow for more time.

Once your exam is complete, your doctor will review their findings with you and work on a treatment plan that reflects your wants and needs while giving you a functional, healthy smile. We offer many payment options and can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford.

First Visit Dental Health Scan

with the itero 5d+

Behold our favorite piece of technology at Stokke Family Dentistry…the iTero 5D+! This video shows a scan of Dr. Stokke’s mouth as she walks though some of the iTero 5D+’s capabilities.

Every new patient who visits our office will receive this same scan on the house! This helps us stay ahead of potential dental issues before they become major problems, saving you time and money. Come in and check it out for yourself!

relationship-based care

At Stokke Family Dentistry, we treat every patient like family. Our warm and welcoming staff takes time to get to know our patients, building genuine relationships while providing excellent dental care.

We are not a dental office that runs patients through our practice. Instead, Dr. Stokke takes the time to meet one-on-one with every patient, every time they come in. Visit Stokke Family Dentistry and experience what true, “family” dentistry feels like.

relaxing atmosphere

You may not associate comfort with the dentist, but at Stokke Family Dentistry, now you can. We work hard to ensure our patients feel at home while they’re with us. We have a full suite of patient amenities to keep you relaxed and entertained from our lobby to our treatment rooms.
