We want you to know that in our office you can expect to be treated with respect at all times. We strive to deliver the best diagnosis and treatment that dentistry has to offer. We believe that these goals can be met through a continuous and open dialogue between you and our entire team.

We aim to continuously improve our dental knowledge and experience to ensure all our patients receive the best possible treatment.

We encourage preventive techniques – helping you to understand how to maintain the health of your mouth and keep it free of tooth decay and gum disease.
On your first visit a comprehensive examination along with a series of x-rays will be done. This will help determine what kind of cleaning you will need to get you started on the road to good oral health. Occasionally, your routine dental cleaning may be performed the same day as the consultation provided an appointment is made with one of our hygienists. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to discuss treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to any dental treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.
We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the fact Drs. Ver Brugge or Phillips provides many types of dental services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
