New Patient Need-to-Knows
What to Expect At Your First Visit
Our front office staff will greet you with a friendly smile. They’ll answer any questions you may have and help out with your paperwork if necessary.
One of our friendly hygienists will greet you in the waiting room and take you to your room where they’ll conduct a gentle, thorough cleaning.
Dr. Einowski will come in and introduce himself and discuss any immediate concerns or questions you may have. From there, he’ll conduct a thorough comprehensive exam, show you his findings, and partner with you to develop a treatment plan.
Once you and our team agree on a treatment plan, you'll talk to our front office where we'll discuss finances and schedule you for your next appointment.

Sensitive Teeth: My teeth had gotten pretty sensitive to hot and cold. It really hurt. Ask your dentist about treating sensitive teeth.
Swelling, Throbbing, Hot/Cold Sensitivity, Pulpitis: Any time the pulp of a tooth has been injured or irritated, there’s a possibility that it may become swollen and painful. This inflammation is called pulpitis. Occasionally, placing a restoration close to the pulp can cause it to become inflamed. Other times, the pulp may become inflamed due to an injury.
Cracked Tooth Syndrome: is a term we use to describe the recurring discomfort, sensitivity, or pain in a tooth, caused by an incomplete fracture or crack.
Grinding, Clenching (Bruxism): Bruxism is the clenching or grinding of the teeth, which often occurs while a person is sleeping and can cause significant damage to your teeth. Common symptoms are jaw pain, headaches (especially soon after you wake up), and worn teeth.
Endodontic Abscess: An endodontic abscess is a pocket of pus that forms in the jawbone at the tip of a tooth root. Common Symptoms: Pain, Swelling, Bad Taste in Your Mouth, Tooth hurts when you bite or tap on it.
Cold Sores: Cold sores, also called fever blisters or oral herpes, are small sores that form most commonly on or near the lips.
Receding Gumlines: When the gumline moves away from the visible part of the tooth, exposing the tooth root, we call this gingival recession.
