Compassionate and Caring from the Start


At your first appointment, we’ll ask you to fill out basic information forms. If you’d like to save time, you can fill out the forms on-line before your visit.  These forms give us the information we need to begin planning your treatment.

Dr. Steven  Polevoy understands that your time is valuable, and he doesn’t keep his patients waiting.  Once you’ve completed the forms, you’ll meet with him to go over your dental history, your fears about dental care, and your goals for your smile. This conversation will give you a chance to get to know Dr. Polevoy, express any concerns, and learn about how our team can give you the pain-free dental experience you want.
