Your First dental Visit

When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted by our friendly front desk staff, who will assist you with any paperwork and answer any questions you may have. Complimentary water and coffee are available. To ensure your experience is as streamlined as possible, we ask that you provide us with your insurance information at least 48 hours in advance of your appointment time.

Once you’ve completed the necessary paperwork, you will meet with either Dr. Vaughn or Dr. Praylo, our highly skilled family dentist in Atlanta. They will make a diagnosis of your gum health to specify the type of cleaning that is necessary and perform a comprehensive examination and any necessary X-rays to gather a complete picture of your oral health needs.

After your examination, they will explain the findings and recommend any necessary treatments or procedures, when applicable. They will also address any questions or concerns you may have and work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your goals and budget. Optional in-house sedation is also available for pending treatments.
