Redefining the patient experience

At Flax Dental, going to the dentist is an empowering experience — something to look forward to! Your first visit is all about getting to know you, understanding your goals, and helping you feel inspired by the possibility of transforming your smile and your future.

Ready to get started?

Your first visit will last about 2 ½ hours – we are very thorough!

Your first visit to our office is a comprehensive oral health/smile evaluation and planning session. We’ll take 3D dental photographs, discuss your concerns and goals, and examine your teeth and gums. Dr. Flax will meet with you one-on-one to develop a personalized recommendation for creating your new smile.

Depending on your needs, you may also have a professional cleaning, or we may recommend waiting until your next appointment.
