First Visit & Forms

What to Expect

So you’ve made an appointment to visit a Blue Ridge Dental Maple Grove or Minnetonka dentist. We’re eager to get acquainted and learn about your needs or goals for dental treatment! Our practice is committed to providing a comfortable environment where you can feel confident in the level of dental care you receive.

First Timers

If this is your first time visiting our practice, you may complete and submit all necessary forms through our website from the privacy of your own home. Or, plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete the necessary forms in our office.

Initial Exam

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Generally, digital X-rays will be taken allowing your dentist to examine your jaw’s structure, teeth position, identify any cavities or other potential dental issues. Oral hygiene instructions will also be provided along with suggestions to help you care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

Open Communication

We believe that excellent dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about any symptoms present that may require further dental treatment, our diagnosis, alternative treatments that may exist, and our recommendations. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal: keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
