Starting your implant journey is a big deal. That’s why we’re with you at every step, including your first visit. We’re here to support you and answer your questions, so you stay confident on your path to a better smile.

Taking the first step

You’ve got this—and we’ve got you. Together, we’ll create the best treatment plan for your future smile. Let’s go.

Get a new patient consultation

At the beginning of your visit, we’ll complete a full new patient examination to assess your overall oral health. We’ll get to know you and your dental history so you can get your best smile yet.

Scan your smile

After your evaluation, we’ll take comprehensive imaging of your smile to assess if you’re a good candidate for dental implants. First, we’ll use a CBCT scan to examine the health of your jawbone. Next, we’ll take a precise intraoral scan that takes a 3D image of your mouth. Then your implant expert will review their recommendation with you.

Create your treatment plan

Once your evaluation and imaging is complete, we’ll walk you through the best options for your health and smile to create a treatment plan together. After, you can accept treatment to begin next steps, or review treatment plan costs. We aim to make your care affordable, and make applying for financing easy.


Treatment, accepted!
