Terrace Creek Dental Care

What should I expect during my first appointment?

Dr. Jagow and her dental team love welcoming new patients, and we want to ensure sure that, starting with your first visit, your experience with us is comfortable and stress-free.

A lot happens during your first dental visit because we want to make sure we have all the information we need to provide you with the most appropriate dental care. Before your appointment, we will ask you to complete forms that include your dental and medical history and the prescription medications you take.

During your first dental appointment at our Mountlake Terrace dental office, Dr. Jagow will review the information you provide and ask you about any concerns that you would like us to help you with. She will perform a complete head and neck exam and oral cancer screening and take digital x-rays and intraoral photos of your teeth and mouth.

You will meet with one of our dental hygienists who will polish your teeth and check for early signs of tooth decay and look for symptoms of gingivitis. After your examination, Dr. Jagow will meet with you to discuss her findings and work with you to create an individualized treatment plan. We will explain how your dental insurance applies to the proposed treatment, discuss the financing options we offer, and help you schedule future appointments as necessary.

We would love to welcome you to our extended dental family! If you’re ready to schedule an appointment for your first visit to our Mountlake Terrace dental office, call Terrace Creek Dental Care.
