Would you like a sneak preview of your first dental visit with us? Check it out!
Our dental office is located right next to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. The address is 810 Canton Rd. NE Ste A. 30060.
When you walk in, you’ll be greeted by Shirley and Bonny, who will check you in for your visit.
If you get a chance, please fill out our new patient forms before your visit. You can also ask for a print out version of the forms and arrive 15 minutes earlier to fill them out.
If you have access to recent dental x-rays, please have your previous dentist send them to your personal email address and you can forward them to us. This is usually the easiest way for us to get your x-rays. Due to privacy laws, you may need to sign a form at your previous dentist, if we try to request your x-rays for you.
We have two awesome dental hygienists, Alex and Connie, who will take care of you at your first dental visit.
After speaking to you about any dental concerns and consulting Dr. Sierra, Alex or Connie will usually start by taking your dental x-rays. The x-rays help us detect dental problems early before they become detectable with a visual exam.
If you have any favorite music that you would like us to play during your visit, let us know! We have headphones available to make your visit more comfortable.
An important part of your initial exam is to check for any signs of gum disease. Your gums are the foundation of your mouth; the gums and the jaw bone underneath anchor the teeth in place. We’ll measure the small areas at the gum line, called gum pockets, to check for any signs of gum disease such as bone loss, puffy gums, or tartar build-up. The gum exam allows us to determine the type of cleaning that is needed for your teeth and gums.
Dr. Sierra, your dentist in Marietta, GA will also discuss any dental concerns with you. He will then perform an oral cancer screening, checking your neck and mouth for any abnormal areas. Lastly, he will check each tooth for any problems, such as cavities or fractures.
We’ll review your treatment plan with you, including an estimate of costs before starting any treatment.
Dr. Sierra, the dental assistant, will ask you about the main concern and do their best to make you more comfortable as soon as possible.
We will typically take an x-ray of the problem area to help Dr. Sierra diagnose the problem.
Once Dr. Sierra can make an accurate diagnosis, he can talk to you about your treatment options.
We’ll give you an estimate of costs before starting treatment. In many cases, we are able to do treatment on the same day as the visit.
Thank you for choosing us and we look forward to providing you a great experience in our office.
