What To Expect On Your First Visit
During your first visit, Dr. Ness will review your dental and medical history forms and will take any necessary X-rays of your teeth. Then, the doctor will complete a very comprehensive exam of your teeth and mouth. This exam in conjunction with the x-rays will help to create your own individual treatment plan and answer any questions that you may have.
Also at this visit, one of our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth. Sometimes additional cleaning appointments may be necessary depending on the health of your gums and the condition of the supporting bone. Please allow 2 hours for this first visit.
The cost of your treatment will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. If you have questions about the cost of your treatment, we are here to help answer those questions. If you need to make financial arrangements please let us know before you begin, so that we can best help you find solutions.

Social distancing and sanitization procedures are implemented and observed by this lovely practice. Dr. Shane Ness is a family friend and a wonderful dentist. I have always enjoyed going to Ness Family Dentistry these past few years, but I am particularly appreciative of his wonderful assistants, admins and hygienists.
