Suggestions For How To Prepare For Your First Visit

Making sound decisions about your dental care and oral health is an easy thing to do with the right preparation beforehand:

Make a list of questions to ask our office, so you don't forget anything on the day of your appointment. This includes any concerns you have, or oral problems you've been experiencing.

If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your insurance card with you.

Explore our website for practical information you need for your first visit, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, insurance and billing policies, and more. But also take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with Dr. Habbal and our committed team before your first visit. We can't wait to connect with you.

Bring a list of concerns or persistent dental issues you've been meaning to get addressed. Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor provides the best possible experience for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. So we encourage you to educate yourself on your symptoms by exploring the content on our comprehensive dental website before you visit us. Then bring all your questions and we'll be ready to answer them!
