WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT?
Very few dentists throughout Fargo and Moorhead, MN provide solutions worthy of the lifestyle of a busy professional, parent, and spouse. During your first visit at Riverview Family Dental, you can expect:
- A warm, friendly greeting from Theresa the moment you walk in.
- A tour of what hopefully will become your new dental home away from home.
- A 1.5-hour one-on-one appointment with Dr. Harnish, so he understands what’s most important to you and what options interest you.
Next, you’ll receive a comprehensive (or whole-health) exam to analyze the condition of your dental structure, biology, function, and esthetic harmony.
Based on your needs, this personalized exam will include a muscle and TMJ exam to identify any pain points, a bite exam to check for instabilities, a gum tissue exam, and a thorough exam of the teeth to check for any decay.
We take a session of HD photos and review them on a big interactive screen, where you can share with us the areas that are of concern to you. We will share areas that may be of concern down the road.
After talking about the practical solutions available for reaching your goals and preventing future concerns, we will print out four photographs of specific areas of your smile that you can improve.
You get to take home photos of your smile and practical options visualized on the screen for improving it and preventing your smile from needing to be fixed later on.
We’re known for being overachievers. You’ll get a complimentary welcome bag with a water bottle, Chapstick, and a surprise gift to take home.
You will also receive another nice surprise in the mail to help explain and illustrate your smile options with your family or spouse.
For the kiddos, we prepare our special coloring sheet package that will keep them engaged in their oral health too! Download your children’s coloring sheets here:
- Kid’s dental chart
- “I take care of my smile!”
- “I brushed my teeth today!”
- “I keep my teeth strong and healthy!”
When I first lost my two front teeth, my first thought was ‘I will not be able to eat corn on the cob or eat an apple.’ Dr. Harnish made very sure the color of the implants matched, the bite was absolutely correct, and I was comfortable with my new smile.
