New Patients

Welcome! We're so glad you're interested in Belmont Family Dentistry, and we're looking forward to meeting you in person.

Wondering what to expect during your first visit? First of all, know that all of us are committed to making sure you feel appreciated and comfortable from the instant you walk through our front doors to the moment we wave goodbye. Your health and dental needs are our top priority, and we'll give you the most thorough and enjoyable dental experience possible.

Expect to be greeted warmly by either Paula, our patient coordinator, or Sarah, our financial coordinator. She will answer any questions you have before getting you settled in our cozy reception area. Sip on a cup of hot tea or freshly-brewed coffee as you peruse your favorite magazine and relax.

Once you're ready, one of our wonderful dental assistants, Kasandra, Sharon, Antonia or Madison, will welcome you. She'll show you into one of our exam rooms before she looks over your paperwork to make sure everything is in order. Next, she'll take a few x-rays and photographs of your mouth. X-rays help Dr. Tinkle diagnose necessary treatment as well as any potential problems.

If you've had relatively recent dental care, you'll get the chance to meet one of our gentle dental hygienists, Jessica, Jaime, Alanna or Gen. Depending on your needs, she'll clean your teeth and provide you with the preventative services best suited for you. She'll also give you some great tips on keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.

Next in is Dr. Tinkle, who will give you a thorough exam so he can check for oral cancer and diagnose any other dental needs. Once the exam is finished, the two of you will develop a customized treatment plan designed to transform your teeth for the better. Dr. Tinkle will give you time to go over all your options, and he'll answer any questions you have. 

Before you leave, make sure you chat with Sarah or Jesse if you have any questions about your insurance or finances.

Thank you for visiting us!
