Helpful Resources for First-Time Patients


If this will be your first visit with us, WELCOME! We're glad you found us!

If you wish, you may download and fill out the forms at the bottom of this page, saving you time at your appointment. Or, if you'd rather, just arrive a little early for your appointment and you can fill them out at the office.

A first impression is everything, and we want your first visit to be welcoming, comfortable, and even fun! Our goal is to give you a bright, healthy and comfortable smile that lasts a lifetime.


We Go "All-Out" to Make You Comfortable!


We understand that often your first visit to a dentist's office can be intimidating. (We've all been dental patients, ourselves!) All of us at Dr. Markel's want you to feel relaxed about your dental treatment. You won't be rushed around at our office. We make it our goal to pamper you with a pleasant, comfortable experience.

You should also know that we don't use ugly metals or mercury fillings in our office. All the materials we use are biocompatible—and nice looking!


What to Expect at Your First Visit


At your first visit, Dr. Markel will sit down with you and listen to your concerns. What's bothering you right now is what we want to address right now!

Then we'll get right on with fixing the issue, to get you out of pain—whatever it is we need to do to get you smiling again!

But before we do any procedure, we'll always give you options, present our recommendations to you, and go over the different costs with you. Then YOU tell US what you'd like us to do for you. 

That's the way it's been and always will be at our office.
