When you visit our west Savannah dental office, you will be greeted by our dedicated dental team, who will be excited to meet you. 

Our team truly loves dentistry and enjoys providing you with excellent dental care. We want you to get the most out of your dental visit, and we can best help you when we have complete information. With that in mind, please bring the following with you to your first appointment, if possible:

  • Your recent x-rays, if you have them
  • A list of your current medications
  • Your medical history
  • Your completed patient forms, which are downloadable on our website
  • Any questions you have for our dental team
  • Your photo ID or driver’s license
  • Your health insurance card, if you have one
  • Payment for your appointment, if necessary

If you prefer to fill out your patient forms in our comfortable waiting room, we are happy to provide the forms in our dental office. 

Your First Dental Appointment

Once you have checked in, providing the above information, you will meet our hygienist or the dentist, depending on your dental needs. If you have scheduled a dental cleaning, our hygienist thoroughly cleans your teeth during the appointment, so you leave our office with a beautiful, clean smile.

Whether or not you have your teeth cleaned, our dentist, Dr. Lee J Martin, thoroughly examines your teeth, takes x-rays of your mouth, and discusses any dental issues with you. He also does an oral cancer screening at this time and answers any questions you may have. 

Depending on Dr. Martin’s findings during the exam, he may recommend follow-up appointments for dental treatments. If dental treatments are necessary, we will explain them thoroughly, and we always welcome questions.

Our main goal with your first appointment is to get to know you and your dental needs, and we want to ensure that you are comfortable with our recommendations and services.
