New Patients: What to Expect from Your Dentist Appointment

If you’re a new patient to Millcreek Dental Care, welcome! We’re an experienced, certified and professional family dentist office located in the heart of Millcreek Ravine. We’ve served Edmonton patients for over 25 years, and our longevity is thanks to our commitment to getting to know each of our patients individually and providing personalized dental care. Your first dentist appointment will typically consist of:

  • Bite evaluation

  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) evaluation if needed

  • Neck and head evaluation if needed

  • X-rays

  • Tooth exam and cleaning

  • Periodontal exam

Before Your First Exam

We know that some people are nervous about visiting the dentist, particularly if it’s your first time. We understand, and we want to put you at ease! If you’re nervous or have any special requests, let us know prior to your appointment and we’ll do our best to accommodate. Come in a few minutes early to fill out forms, and bring your insurance information if you have it. The first appointment will consist of a full dental exam and full hygiene appointment, so it can take a little longer than a regular visit.

Our X-Rays

At our office, we take digital X-rays. These are preferable to conventional X-rays because they produce the same quality image as conventional X-rays while resulting in 70% less radiation exposure.

If you’re a new patient, contact us today! We look forward to getting to know you and learning about your individual dental needs.

We have a full range of dental procedures for the health and appearance of your smile.
