Getting Started

Getting Started with Celestial Dental, Getting Started, Celestial Dental | General Dentist

The most important parts of any healthy relationship are that of communication, trust, and respect.

This will be evident in your first visit at Celestial Dental and every visit thereafter. At your first visit, you will meet our doctor for an interview and examination. No two mouths are alike – each exam is tailored to your needs and wants.

We are here to guide you and your oral health in a professional and scientifically sound manner. Dr. C is a doctor of compassion, not judgment. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve last been to the dentist – he and his team are here to help you.

Preparing for Your Visit:

We want your appointment to be as smooth as possible. Help us make that happen by completing a few things:

  • Bring a government-issued ID
  • Bring a copy of your dental insurance
  • Get directions to the office
  • Arrive 10 minutes early
  • Call office for COVID-19 health check-in confirmation

Please contact us 48 hours in advance for appointment cancellations.

First Appointment Expectations:


1. Our new patient exams for adults are 90 minutes long.

We start off with x-rays of your teeth and gums and intraoral pictures of your teeth. We also assess the health of your gums. 

2. After reviewing everything going on in your mouth, we hold a case conversation.

Dr. C will inform you of his concerns, and then together we will figure out what is the best course of treatment for you. Your teeth are then cleaned, and the order of scheduled treatment is then decided.

3. Our patients are more to us than just a mouth and teeth.

Dr. C and the staff genuinely look forward to hearing about work and school, your family, and any hobbies you enjoy!
