What should you experience on your first trip to our office? Our friendly dental team will welcome you into a peaceful, stress-free environment, where you are considered fully as a person.
Our approach to practice means we consider your overall health and underlying causes, and seek to get you on the path to optimal wellness: both dental and beyond. Our Lake Leelanau holistic family practice is just down the road from Traverse City, MI and offers care to patients of all ages, both in Traverse City itself and the entire Northern Michigan area!
Your First Visit: What To Expect
The first time you visit us at Lisa Siddall, DDS, we will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any related anxieties you may have about dental care.
To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations and needs are for treatment. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth, will be addressed immediately!
Nervous about the dentist? Have a child with you? We provide tours of our office upon request to take the uncertainty out of your visit.
We Don’t Rush Your Care
Please reserve approximately 90 minutes of your time for your first visit with us. First, we will take a set of x-rays to provide a comprehensive view of your entire mouth, including the roots of your teeth and your jawbones. A periodontal exam will follow to evaluate your gum health and to screen for gum recession.
If your gums have no swelling or deep pockets, we will continue with a preventive cleaning. Finally, Dr. Siddall or Dr. Burke will create a customized care plan to help you restore your smile back to its full health. Each treatment plan outlines the recommended courses of care.
Dr. Siddall or one of our treatment coordinators will explain how these therapies can help to improve your oral health and schedule treatments accordingly.
