First Visit

Welcome to an improved level of dental care for you and your family. At the Center for Restorative, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, we want to make every visit to our office comfortable and relaxing, starting with your first visit as a new patient. This is our chance to get to know you and find out more about your oral health goals. But since it is your first time coming to our office, we will need to get some information from you to build your patient file.

Before your appointment, you can fill out the new patient forms we have online for your convenience. This is general information that we need to provide you with the best care possible. You can fill in the information at your convenience, and we will receive it before your visit. When you come in, we will let you know if there is anything else we need to get your patient file up-to-date.

During Your Appointment

When you come in for your first visit, we will want to perform a full exam to better understand your oral health level and any treatments you may need. If you need x-rays, we will get digital pictures of your teeth and jaw to use during your exam. In most cases, you will meet with one of our hygienists for a periodontal exam and cleaning. This gives us a chance to evaluate your gum health, clean your teeth and prepare a treatment or cleaning plan for the future.

When you meet with one of our dentists, they will do a thorough exam. We offer oral cancer screenings, which we recommend – early detection is the best way to fight cancer. The doctor will go over your x-rays and perform a physical exam of your teeth and gums. We have intraoral cameras that we can use to show you any issues. You can view the images on a clear, digital screen.

If there are any oral concerns, your doctor will discuss treatment options and the best plan to continue caring for your oral health. This is a good time to ask questions. If you are interested in any specialty services like cosmetic or implant dentistry, the doctor can give you more information. Contact us today to schedule you first appointment at the Center for Restorative, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry.

I always have a great experience whenever I visit as was the case this a.m.-from the moment you walk in the door to the exit after paying my bill- everyone is friendly pleasant and respectful- I appreciate the patience & kindness from all especially Dental Hygienist Holly Rode & Dr M Ravey. The office itself is clean, bright & even “smells” good. Good people – nice people & they have always taken great care of my teeth, so I really don’t mind paying the bill (Ha-Ha).

Staff is courteous and efficient. Patti, dental hygienist is the best hygienist I have ever encountered. Does an exceptional job and is caring and personable! Thank you Patti for making me feel comfortable in your hands. Dr Patel and Dr Lewis are also exceptional. Great dentistry, Greenbrier area!

Been going to this practice since about 2000, before it became the Center for Restorative Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. Good then, best now!!! Love the dentist, Dr. Martha Lewis. She has done a crown for me and a replacement bite guard that has been my best ever. The girls up front are awesome. And my cleanings have always been great. Love this office. I am moving out of the area and would take it with me if I could!!!

Doctors Pate and Lewis are fantastic! The office and staff are welcoming and reassuring. All procedures are painless. Appointments are confirmed days ahead of schedule via phone which is a nice reminder. I highly recommend Drs. Pate and Lewis.

I absolutely loved this team, from the phone call scheduling my first appointment, to the time I left I felt like I was part of their family! I highly recommend this practice.

Always happy and helpful staff. I’ve been going there for at least 10 years. My hygienist, Laura, is great and attentive. She always remembers what’s going on in my life. It’s always great to see a familiar face. They are always up to date on the latest technology and the office is always clean. Unless I move, I’ll never leave.
