Your First Visit

Your first visit to our office is a special event! Our friendly team will welcome you and assist with any questions about your oral health.

At your first appointment, Dr. Rodriguez will spend time with you to review your dental and medical history and discuss your goals for your smile to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Following a complete examination with necessary xrays and gum measurements, we will review our findings and recommendations with you to arrive at a plan to achieve optimum dental care and improve your overall health.

Your Child's First Visit to the Dentist

We pace your child's first visit with us based on their interest and response to the dental environment. We make everything fun as we introduce your child to the sights and sounds of the dentist! Sometimes it is just a ride in the “spaceship” (dental chair) or a teeth cleaning while your child holds “Mr. Thirsty” (the suction) and learns what we are all about.

Making each dental visit a “Happy Visit” for your child will help motivate them to maintain proper oral health as they grow up. If you child has extensive dental needs or is very apprehensive, we may refer them to one our pediatric dental specialists colleagues to make sure they get the care that they need.

Everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile.

We want you to feel completely comfortable in our care - if you or your child have any concerns or specific needs, please share them with us, we want to know! Our Team can also assist you with filing dental insurance, or help you with financial options for any necessary treatment.

We look forward to meeting you!

Our dental office is located at the intersection of Patton Ave (US 19/23) and Johnston Blvd in West Asheville – map & directions. Please do not hesitate to Contact Us with any questions about your first visit.
