Portrait of Happy Family In Park after their first visit with their Richland, WA dentist

As your preferred Richland dental care provider, we make sure that at Midtown Dental Clinic, every visit to our office is streamlined and stress-free. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early with your driver’s license and insurance card in hand so that you can fill out patient registration forms at your leisure. You can also download them online, fill them out ahead of time, and bring them in with you.

A new patient appointment is a chance for you to receive a comprehensive oral evaluation. This allows us to be able to establish the level of cleaning necessary based on your unique needs.

For adults, we reserve one hour for a complete exam, which includes the following:

  • A tour of our office
  • A review of your health history
  • X-rays when necessary
  • Imaging
  • Hygiene evaluation
  • A treatment and full cleaning
  • Comprehensive oral cancer screening

Richland dentists Drs. Bunch and Kleist will walk you through their findings and work closely with you to create a dental plan designed to meet your unique oral health goals.

Children’s appointments are typically about 30 minutes. As long as the child is comfortable, the appointment includes time for the dentist and the child to get acquainted, to complete an exam, and to clean your child’s teeth.

Please note: If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason at all, we are happy to do so with 24 hours’ notice prior to your appointment.

If you have any additional questions about what to expect during your first exam, please feel free to contact us at 509.946.1678 to find out more.
