What To Expect at Ashford Pointe Dental

New Patients

The 411

First time with us? No problem —here’s the scoop on what to expect when you arrive at our office. We likely received your insurance information over the phone and confirmed everything, but if that hasn’t happened yet, there may be some light paperwork to take care of before you get to meet your amazing dental team! Once you’ve made it into the exam room, you’ll meet with the dental hygienist and one of our dentists so that our team can learn more about your goals, concerns, and expectations for treatment. Following a brief discussion, Dr. Hughes will perform a comprehensive oral exam —this may also include a periodontal exam, oral cancer screening, digital x-rays, digital photos, and a complete work-up of your mouth.

Following your initial exam, a consultation will give you the opportunity to speak directly with one of our dentists about your treatment options. Together, a treatment plan that suits your needs and budget will be crafted. At this time, you can ask any question you like about the services that interest you. Before you leave, we’ll schedule your next visit, and if necessary, your hygiene appointment.

Let Our Patients Do the Talking

We are committed to you and your oral health. Why? Because we’re community members, too — your friends and neighbors — and we know that better oral health means a stronger, healthier community. But, don’t take our word for it — hear it straight from our patients:
