Your First Appointment

Your First Visit

We believe no two patients are alike. Smile Missoula takes pride in learning how we can make a difference for each and every patient, as the goals are unique for each person. We believe in taking the time to listen and understand your long-term goals, your vision for your oral and overall health, your expectations, timelines and life circumstances because we realize that all of these factors affect your ability to choose and follow through with the type of dentistry that is right for you. We find that individuals strive for different levels of health and we honor that. Many of our patients come to us seeking regular hygienic care, while others have sought us for our expertise in reconstructive, implant, and cosmetic dentistry. Some have even contacted us in severe discomfort. Whatever the reason, our trained experienced staff will help make your first appointment appropriate to your needs and desires. Our phones are answered 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Please contact our office for an appointment today.

Our Approach

Smile Missoula typically reserves one hour for your initial new patient appointment. Upon arrival at our office we will go over all of your paperwork including any dental insurance information. Our hygienist will first review medical history and take needed x-rays of your teeth, and then one of our Doctors will perform a complete tooth by tooth examination pointing out his findings while listening to your chief concerns. During this very thorough exam we are able to assess your oral condition and offer cosmetic and restorative suggestions. We are then able to set the next appropriate appointment for you.

If you are having a toothache or other dental emergency, Smile Missoula will make every effort to see you at the earliest possible appointment, please contact us for any questions.
