The New Patient Experience

First Visit

Your first visit will begin by entering our state-of-the-art facility, which welcomes you with a relaxing reception area. Our warm and friendly team members will help you with any necessary forms or questions you may have.


We will perform a full exam and then discuss your case in our consultation room. This provides you with the opportunity to discuss your concerns and desires with Dr. Lattner out of the dental chair.


After your initial consultation with Dr. Lattner, you will be guided to an exam room to begin the new patient exam. This is a very thorough exam that allows Dr. Lattner to best advise you on your dental needs. We use state-of-the-art digital x-rays and cameras to be able to provide the best communication and care possible.

Evaluation and Treatment Presentation

Once this information is collected from your exam and x-ray, Dr. Lattner will complete a thorough evaluation. Upon examination, Dr. Lattner will determine your need for further treatment and diagnosis.

Ultimately, our goal is to change your perspective of what it means to go to the dentist. Dr. Lattner loves treating patients and helping them feel more comfortable with their smiles.

If Dr. Lattner believes you need further treatment he will come up with a treatment plan and present that you in a detailed way that you will understand. During this time you have the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Lattner and review all of the information that has been collected. We pride ourselves on presenting your treatment needs in an easy to understand way that best helps you to make the right decisions for your oral health and overall wellbeing. Once you and Dr. Lattner have decided a treatment path together, one of our friendly team members will guide you through any financial questions you may have.
