First Visit Expectations

We know that first visits to any doctor’s office can be intimidating. Not only is your physical comfort important to us, but your emotional well-being is, too. 

Here is what you can expect during your initial visit to Court Street Dentistry.  

During your first visit, we will get to know you by asking some questions about your medical and oral health history. Please bring a list of any medications you may be taking, including all vitamins and over-the-counter supplements, and their dosages.

We love to educate our patients and answer questions, so don’t be shy! We encourage you to ask questions and express your concerns or desires. 

Next, we will perform a comprehensive oral exam that includes a non-invasive oral cancer screening, periodontal probing, charting your existing dental restorations, and x-rays. If no signs of periodontal disease are present, you will have a routine cleaning after your exam. If we do notice signs of periodontal disease, we may reschedule the cleaning portion of your visit to allow for more time. 

Once your exam is complete, Dr. Mapes will review his findings with you and create a treatment plan that reflects your wants and needs while giving you a functional, healthy smile. 

We offer many payment options and can prioritize and stagger your treatments to give you a smile you deserve in a timeframe you can afford. 

We want your visit with us to exceed your expectations, so please ask any questions and offer any suggestions you have!
