First Dental Visit & Dental Exam

Your comfort and satisfaction are important to us—and that starts here, with an explanation of what you can expect at your first dental visit

Hellos and paperwork

  • Please come in 15 minutes before your appointment so you have time to complete your paperwork and discuss and necessary insurance questions.
  • Save time: Fill out you paperwork at home. Scroll to the bottom of this page and download the “New Patient Docs”. By downloading and filling out your forms now you can save time in the office later.

Initial comprehensive exam & X-rays

You will meet with your dentist or dental hygienist to talk about your medical history. If you have any oral health worries or fears, you can feel comfortable sharing them with her—your comfort is most important, so we encourage you to ask questions.

Next, we will likely examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, and take x-rays and/or panoramic radiographs. Panoramic radiographs help your dentist view unerupted or impacted teeth, as well as sinus conditions, and can detect lesions or fractures in the jaw. Please notify our staff if you have had x-rays taken within the last 3 years so we can let you know if they are needed at your scheduled appointment. WE WILL NEED CURRENT X-RAYS TO COMPLETE A COMPREHENSIVE EXAM AND DETERMINE WHAT HYGIENE TREATMENT IS SUITABLE FOR YOU.

  • This initial comprehensive exam is a no-risk way to learn the status of your oral health, and to learn how our dental team can help you.
  • There’s a good reason why you may not have your teeth cleaned at your first appointment: Each new patient relationship often starts with an initial exam so your dental team can understand your needs and concerns first, then tailor your hygiene treatment to you. This way, you’ll get the most out of your cleaning appointments and the time and attention you deserve.

“Great Dentist Office! I'm a new patient with Main Steet Dental in Newark. The office is very friendly and the hygentists are very detailed and offer great advice. In addition, they started right on time with no waiting. A++”

Valued PatientReview

“I have been going to Dr. Cox – and Wendy – for over twenty years (yikes!) and love them so much that I brought my kids here when it was time. It’s almost like we are family. We have all had kids (and grandkids for some) and sharing that with the same people has been amazing. You don’t find that very often these days.”

Valued PatientReview

“Everyone in the office is so friendly and always greet us when we come in. My kids are actually excited to come to the dentist, although that might have something to do with the prizes!! They adore Miss Wendy and love going for rides on the chair and visiting with “Mr. Thirsty” and the rest of his friends!!”

Valued PatientReview

“It has also been so wonderful getting to know Dr. Erin and watching her family grow. I could sit and write for hours about how incredible this office is but you’ll have to come in and see for yourself!!”
