Your first visit to the office of Dr. Smith typically includes an x-ray that allows us to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.

The initial visit also involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history please be sure to provide:

  • complete, up-to-date information on your health.
  • if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or recently been ill.
  • the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products.
  • the name of your physician.
  • of any changes in your health or medications.

Consultation

After or Dr. Smith have evaluated your records, we discuss any follow-up treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.

Regular Appointments

Regular checkup appointments typically take one hour. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.

I avoided seeing a dentist for years because I was so afraid. I’m so grateful I found Dentistry NW. The staff is amazing and were so patient with me and all the challenges my anxiety brings. I’ve never felt more comfortable in a dentists chair. The dental assistant even held my hand while I got my shots! Love this office so much.

Dr. Baer has been my dentist for many years, since he began practicing at the old Tacoma Mall location. Though support staff has changed over the years, they have always been friendly and conscientious. All needed dental procedures have been well explained with alternatives given. Hygienists also well appreciated for care they take. State of the art with spirit of family dentistry.
