Your First Visit
Before you come to your first visit, you can fill out your Registration Forms, or print them and fill them out at home and bring them with you to save time. You can also register at our office but be sure to allow extra time BEFORE your appointment. When you get to our office, you will be greeted by a warm welcome and a friendly "hello". At Williams & Sivie, DDS you are never a number or "next in line", you are our guest, our Most Valuable Person. Bottled water, juice, coffee, hot chocolate and other refreshments are available in our reception area along with HDTV and a short wait, not the long wait you may be accustomed to.
Your exam and cleaning time will be approximately an hour and a half and will consist of a review of your Health History, recording of blood pressure, taking any recommended digital radiographs, assessing your periodontal health and then recommendation of the appropriate cleaning or periodontal debridement depending on your periodontal status. If your periodontal health is good, a regular dental prophylaxis will be provided. If your periodontal status includes gingivitis or any level of periodontal disease, the proper periodontal debridement will be discussed in detail and provided at this first visit. Further periodontal treatment options will be presented along with any alternatives.
During the exam portion of your visit, Dr. Williams or Dr. Sivie will provide a detailed exam of your oral tissues including an oral cancer exam, cursory TMJ exam, occlusal evaluation, exam for dental caries using a visual evaluation, digital x-rays and the Kavo Diagnodent™. Study models may be requested and digital photographs will be taken. After Dr. Williams or Dr. Sivie has the appropriate diagnostic information, a Treatment Plan will be formulated and discussed. Sometimes, the doctors will request a separate consultation appointment if much dentistry is needed or if additional time is needed to discuss your options. Just a reminder if you are one of us who need a little help relaxing at the dentist. We offer Nitrous Oxide Sedation, Satellite TV, headphones and Oral Conscious Sedation and the friendliest staff on earth.
All this is to say that we really, really care about our family of patients. From our office staff to the assistants to the doctors...even to the part-time helpers that just enjoy working in a positive and encouraging atmosphere. Come see us at Williams & Sivie, DDS and experience the difference!
