First Visit at Creekside Dental

As your preferred Vancouver, WA dental care provider, we make sure that at Creekside Dental 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.

For adults, we reserve 90 minutes for a complete exam that includes the following:

  • Review of health history
  • Digital X-rays – complete series (Radiographic survey of the whole mouth)
  • Imaging
  • Gum evaluation
  • Periodontal charting and evaluation of periodontal conditions


Dr. Hanson will walk you through his findings and work closely with you to create a dental plan designed to meet your unique oral health goals.

Children’s appointments are 30 to 45 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, we ask that all cancellations be made 24 hours prior to your appointment.
If you have any additional questions about what to expect during your first exam with Creekside Dental, please feel free to contact us at (360) 980-8486 or use our online form to find out more.
