What to expect at your first visit

Thank you for visiting our website and learning about the services and support our team provides your family every time you visit our practice. Choosing a new dentist for your family is an important decision – and there’s a lot that goes into it – so please call us if you have any questions. We’ll be happy to answer them honestly and thoroughly. It’s our hope that we can welcome you to Tabbara Dentistry.



At Tabbara Dentistry, our compassionate team of dedicated professionals works together to deliver the same customer service we’d expect for our own families … in a calm and compassionate atmosphere. Your dental care and its administration will be provided with kindness, understanding, and efficiency. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment time so you can complete the paperwork that helps us gain a better understanding of you. 



When you come in for your first appointment, we’ll ensure a comfortable amount of time to get to know each other and to get the fundamentals of your dental care needs and wants. We will spend a bit more time with you at this first appointment than with your regular recare appointments so that we can do a thorough assessment to ensure an accurate treatment plan that’s specific to your smile. Your hygienist is a “patient-education specialist” who will happily help you to understand how to take care of your teeth at home.


Practice Tour

If you’re feeling nervous about visiting the dentist … please seriously consider coming for this quick tour that will begin to effectively alleviate your anxiety. Meet our doctors and our team and ask whatever questions you need to so you feel more at ease with your decision. Please call us to arrange your visit!


Doctor Checkup

Meet your doctor and discuss your oral health needs and desires for a beautiful smile. The findings of a thorough exam will be reviewed with you before we work together to develop a treatment plan that suits your individual needs and desires for your smile. We’ll recommend a personalized recare schedule, and if you’d like, we can even discuss some cosmetic options. 



Used to create a baseline upon which future care is determined, we use digital x-rays to see what the eye can’t … and we’ll share our findings with you almost immediately! In addition to digital x-rays, we use a small pen-sized camera – called an intraoral camera – to show you what we see when we examine your mouth, so we can discuss our findings together.
