What to Expect

When you arrive, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms. If you would prefer, we can mail the forms to you or you can fill them out online here. We ask that you fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office. Also, please assist us by providing the following information:

  • Any X-rays taken within the past year.  This can be done by requesting that your previous dental office email them to: [email protected].
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Your initial appointment will last approximately 90 minutes. In most cases, we will clean your teeth, and X-rays will be taken. Our dentist will perform a thorough exam and evaluate the diagnostic records, which help in diagnosing tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer. After the examination, our dentist will provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. Take-home oral hygiene instructions will also be provided, along with any suggestions to help you care for your teeth.

Mission Statement

Sunbury Dental is committed to providing the best possible dental care in a friendly, relaxed, and family-oriented atmosphere. Our goal is to be on schedule barring any dental emergency, because we understand that your time is as valuable as ours. We position ourselves to stay abreast of the latest dental knowledge with continuing education courses. It is our job to present our patients with the options of modern dentistry, not to sell the patients on costly treatment. We understand that some treatments can be more expensive than others, so we will always offer alternative treatments when possible. Nevertheless, we refuse to lower our dental standards or ethics due to limitations placed by insurance carriers.
