“Couldn't be happier. You're seen quickly at your appointments and the whole staff seems to care.”

Thank you for choosing our office for your dental needs. At your first dental visit we would like to get to know you better, learn about your past dental experience and form a treatment plan that best fits you.


At your first appointment, we will need you to fill out our new patient paperwork.

Please bring the following with you:

1. Driver’s License

2. Insurance Card (if you have insurance)

3. Any x-ray’s that were taken within the last six months

4. A medication list if there are many


In most cases, we will clean and take x-rays at your initial appointment. This visit will take approximately one hour. A hygienist will perform the cleaning, take x-rays and give home care instructions. Dr. Rather will perform a thorough exam to diagnose any tooth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any sign of oral cancer. After the exam, Dr. Rather will make a treatment plan and your hygienist will go over it thoroughly. A treatment plan is a breakdown of the work needed and the order that Dr. Rather thinks it needs to be done.
