Your First Visit With Us
Seeing a new dentist for the first time can make some people feel a bit uneasy. At Ranieu Family Dental, we’re here to eliminate all the surprises. Our friendly and dedicated team will guide you step-by-step through your visit so you’re never caught off guard.
Once You Arrive
We ask all new patients to complete a series of medical and dental history forms to help us best understand your oral health needs. When you’re finished, you can enjoy a complimentary water as we process all of your information.
Meeting Our Team
One of our dental assistants will escort you back to the clinical area to record your blood pressure and take any necessary x-rays. Then, our hygienist will come in to screen for symptoms of gum disease and note any suspicious areas of tooth decay or infection. Finally, our dentist will review the findings and perform a comprehensive exam of your oral anatomy, as well as discuss any needs or concerns you may have.
In the absence of gum (periodontal) disease, our hygienist will then clean your teeth and provide you with any educational information applicable to your oral health needs.
If You Need Treatment
Our Vancouver dentist will share imaging from your diagnostic x-rays and our intraoral camera, so that you can co-plan your needs right alongside us. If necessary, we will make recommendations as to the next appropriate step. In some cases, we can start treatment the very same day.
To better serve your needs, we have staff that are fluent in English, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, and Tagalog.
