First Visit

Here at the Dornin Dental Center, we pride ourselves in our ability to keep you informed about your dental care so you can make the best decision regarding YOUR dental needs. Your initial appointment will begin with a consultation with Dr. Dornin to get to know a little about you and alleviate any fears or concerns you may have.  Your complete dental and medical history will be reviewed and a thorough exam completed that includes:

  • Examining each tooth individually to access its current condition
  • Periodontal exam
  • Oral cancer exam
  • TMJ/Occlusal/ bite exam
  • Teeth Cleaning
  • X-rays

Dr. Dornin will review the findings, sit down with you to discuss the different treatment options and also take time to listen to your concerns, needs, and desires.  He will answer any questions and help you to determine the best course of action for your individual treatment plan.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation: 

  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • All current and past medical and dental conditions.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.


If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
