Each member of our team plays a vital role in the health and well-being of our patients. Whether we’re checking you in, cleaning your teeth, assisting on a procedure, or explaining a treatment plan, we believe it’s our responsibility to care for your particular needs. We’re excited to invite you into the Northshore Dental family and get to know your beautiful smile!
When you first walk through our doors, you’ll be greeted by our comfortable environment and our friendly office staff. We invite you to sit down and relax as you fill out any new patient forms prior to your appointment. Once those are complete and your hygienist is ready for you, we will invite you back into one of our operatories.
You will receive a cleaning, comprehensive exam, x-rays, and your doctor will sit down with you to discuss the results. If everything looks good, we are able to schedule your next appointment in the front office. If anything needs extra attention, your doctor will explain the results and take time to address any questions or concerns you might have. They will describe any further treatment recommendations.
What to Bring
In order to streamline your experience, we ask that you bring your ID, your insurance information, and any patient forms you have filled out prior to your appointment.
There’s nothing quite like arriving a few minutes early for your appointment and sitting down with a free cup of Starbucks Coffee in a relaxing environment.
We know you would probably rather be going to the spa than to the dentist. At Northshore Dental, you can get the best of both worlds: a relaxing, spa-like environment and a healthy, vibrant smile!
At Northshore Dental, we encourage you to use your appointment as a relaxing break from the busyness of your day. Put on some headphones, earplugs, and eye mask, and relax!
Intraoral scanner technology allows us to get highly accurate 3D images of the contours and shape of your teeth for specific treatment planning and diagnosis.
3D CBCT scans help us to capture the details that normal x-rays might miss: teeth, soft tissue, nerve pathways, and bone.
Using our digital cameras, we are able to capture high-definition images of your smile for better treatment planning and tracking.
