Your First Appointment
Going to a new dentist for the very first time can sometimes feel a bit nerve-wracking. At Temecula Ridge Dentistry, we’re here to make the process as painless as possible!
You’ll want to set aside about an hour for your new patient appointment. Once you’ve arrived, we’ll have some paperwork for you to fill out so that we can get to know you a bit better. After you’re finished, Dr. Murphy will come out to meet you and escort you to one of our treatment rooms.
First, Dr. Murphy will screen for signs of oral cancer — including swelling or tumors through the head and neck. Next, she will assess the health of your teeth and gums. Then, any necessary x-rays will be taken. Dr. Murphy will take thorough notes regarding existing restorations that you may have, as well as measure gum attachment levels throughout your mouth. After comparing these findings to your dental x-rays, she will discuss any findings or concerns that are notable, so that you can make an educated decision about your care.
Your Comfort Is Important to Us
One of the things that sets Dr. Murphy apart from other dentists in the Temecula area is her dedication to your comfort. Whether it’s during an exam, a filling, or a root canal, you’ll find that her gentle touch and patience makes your experience with us something that you can actually look forward to! Dr. Murphy will never rush you through a procedure just to get it over with, causing you to endure unnecessary discomfort. Instead, she’ll take the time to make sure that you’re as relaxed as possible.
