When a new patient joins our dental family, we are committed to taking the time to perform a truly comprehensive examination. This thorough collection of information allows Dr. Stromboe to formulate a customized plan to help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health.

During your first visit, Dr. Stromboe and her team will review your treatment goals and will collect the information needed to create the perfect plan for you. In most cases, Dr. Stromboe will review her findings with you at the end of this initial appointment. However, in cases where a patient’s treatment needs are a bit more involved, Dr. Stromboe will take the time to review the findings gathered from your initial appointment, after which she will invite you back for a no-fee follow-up appointment where she will present your customized treatment plan.

To summarize, your first visit will include:

  • A review of your oral health goals
  • A cosmetic evaluation of your smile
  • A review of your medical history (focusing on issues that can affect your oral health)
  • A thorough examination of your teeth, including needed X-rays
  • A detailed periodontal (gum) exam
  • An oral cancer screening

A common question patients often ask is, “Will I get my teeth cleaned at my first appointment?” Part of your initial exam includes a thorough evaluation of your periodontal, or gum, health. We find that some patients have very healthy gums, while others have severe periodontal disease. Depending on the health of your gums, we will schedule you for the type of cleaning that is most appropriate for you.

Most patients are apprehensive about dental care. Dr. Stromboe strives to make your first appointment and every appointment thereafter a great experience. Her goal is to educate you about your oral health so that you can make informed decisions about your new smile.


We love treating children at Dr. Stromboe’s office. We often times find that they are our very best, and certainly most entertaining patients. We understand that for children and their parents, the first visit can sometimes be a little scary. Please know that we realize your little one may be a bit fussy at their first appointment, but that after a few visits, they should feel comfortable and even excited to come see us. Hopefully, by the time they need work completed on their teeth, they will feel at home with our office and will know that their experience will be a great one!

Your child’s first appointment will include:

  • A thorough examination of their teeth, including needed X-rays
  • An evaluation of their hygiene and gum health
  • An evaluation of the eruption patterns of their teeth
  • An evaluation of the alignment of their teeth
  • A review of dietary and oral hygiene habits
  • Teeth cleaning and fluoride application
  • Brushing and flossing instructions
  • A consultation with parents to review findings, to give recommendations, and to answer any questions they might have

We look forward to helping you start your child off early with good oral health and great oral hygiene habits. Our goal is to help your child learn to love going to the dentist!
