First Time Patients

Please arrive 10 minutes early with your driver’s license and insurance card to fill out our New Patient Forms at your leisure.

Our New Patient Forms are available online here:

A comprehensive adult exam includes the following:

    • A tour of our state-of-the-art office
    • A review of your health history and current concerns
    • X-rays, if necessary
    • Imaging
    • Hygiene evaluation
    • A treatment and full cleaning (if necessary)

Kathy L. French, DDS, FAGD, will walk you through her findings and work closely with you to create a dental plan designed to meet your unique oral health goals.

Children’s appointments typically run shorter and include time with the Dentist to get acquainted, cleaning, exam, and any treatments as necessary / agreed upon. 



Please note: If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason at all, we are happy to do so with 48 hours’ notice prior to your appointment.

If you have any additional questions about what to expect during your first exam, please feel free to contact us at 630.773.6966 to find out more.
