Dental Patient Information – Boston, MA

What You Need to Know

We know that stepping into a new dental office can be a bit anxiety-inducing, so to make sure that your first experience with us is a positive one, we’ve covered everything you need to know ahead of your initial appointment below. You’ll find what to expect at your visit as well as all of our payment and insurance information. Of course, you’re always welcome to give us a call if you have any questions.

Your First Dental Visit

At Devonshire Dental of Boston, we want you to feel welcomed and at ease from the very first time you step through our dental office’s door. If you’re a new patient, you should expect your appointment to last for about 90 minutes. Once you’ve arrived and we’ve confirmed that you’ve completed all of the necessary paperwork, you’ll be escorted back to the operatory so that we can review your health and dental history. X-rays are taken as needed, followed by periodontal charting so that we can determine the relative health of your gums. Then, it’s time for a cleaning to remove plaque and small staining from your smile.

After your cleaning is completed, the hygienist will provide you with a warm towel to freshen up. Then, it’s time to meet one of our dentists! They will perform a comprehensive exam and discuss any recommended treatment with you as thoroughly as possible; we can even provide photos from our intraoral camera to improve your understanding. Once all of the details are hammered out, all that’s left to do is return to the front desk and schedule any follow-up appointment with our friendly team members.
