New patients are always welcome at our Wellington practice. We consider it an honor to have you trust us with your dental care. We appreciate your kind referrals as well. Please provide your insurance information at the time of scheduling your appointment.
Do you have any openings for cleanings?
Yes! We also have appointments available later in the day and on one Saturday per month, so call us to schedule your first cleaning with us.
Do you treat children?
Absolutely. Dr. Miller and his staff love to care for kids. In most cases our youngest patients start at age two for their first “fun” visit with us. During this meet and greet appointment, we provide parents with essential information related to the care of their child’s teeth. In some cases we can also, when allowed, get some or all the teeth polished. The first visit is critical and will be done in a non-threatening way.
If you haven’t had a full set of x-rays within the last five years, we will take those at the beginning of your new patient exam. We will only take necessary x-rays for your proper diagnosis. Dr. Miller will use these x-rays, and where necessary, our advanced CariVu™ tool, to screen for signs of decay. Digital photos of your teeth will also be taken during our comprehensive exam, which we will keep in your patient record for future comparisons.
As part of each exam, we record your blood pressure, perform an oral soft tissue cancer exam, and evaluate your TMJ/TMD. Your gums will be evaluated for signs and symptoms of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
We will listen to any concerns that you have about your oral health, then Dr. Miller will develop a treatment plan with at least one other option that addresses your concerns that will put you on a course toward good oral health that you can maintain.
If You Need Treatment
Some dental problems can be taken care of fairly quickly while others can take several months to accomplish. We will always try to maximize your insurance benefits if you have them to minimize your out of pocket expenses.
Once you’ve decided on a specific type of treatment (or just want to understand one a bit better), we’ll use our CAESY Cloud program to provide you with additional information. With this system, we have access to more than 280 multimedia presentations featuring 3D animation, full-motion video, narration and colorful images on most common dental procedures. The presentations are animations and do NOT show anything that would be objectionable.
