What should you expect the first time you come to visit Dr. Timmerman?

We’re thrilled that you’ve decided to visit our Seattle dental office! During your first visit you will most likely either be seeing Dr. Timmerman for a limited examination (such as while experiencing a toothache), or a new patient preventive care appointment (comprehensive exam and cleaning.) At these visits we will take any necessary digital radiographs to help identify areas of concern, and screen for abnormalities that are not visible during a clinical examination.

Preventive Care Appointments

If routine dental care is your concern, we invite you to schedule a preventive care appointment. New patient preventive care appointments involve a cleaning, examination, periodontal disease screening, oral cancer screening, digital X-rays and educational sources as needed. We’ll also discuss your needs and goals for your smile. Our goal during these appointments is to create a relationship with you as a person, and understanding of you as a patient. Since we take a preventive care approach to your care, these are one of the most important visits that our patients have with us. Early disease diagnosis and intervention will keep your smile needs minimal for future visits.

A Comfortable Atmosphere

Our team makes your comfort our first priority. We’ll always make it easy to access comfort items such as nitrous oxide, sedation options, or even a blanket. It’s our goal to help you feel at home when you’re with us, so that you’ll want to keep coming back. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you feel more comfortable – because when you’re comfortable, it’s easier for us to do our job!

Dr Lance Timmerman and his staff are wonderful! He offers a comfortable approach and clearly loves his profession. It is a good feeling to experience a great personality that includes confidence and professionalism during procedures that are typically not looked forward to.
