We will gather all the information we need to properly diagnose any immediate and future dental concerns. We will review your past medical and dental history and create a treatment plan for your optimal oral health. We will give you all the information you need to make the best decision for what’s best for you.

During your new patient exam we will take pictures and x-rays and review them with you and show you what they show us. And for most new patients, we will then clean your teeth keeping your comfort our top priority. Dr. Orcutt will then come in and discuss the findings in detail so you can make the best decisions for your oral care. Dr. Orcutt’s goal is to always give you all the information you need so that you can make your own decision about what is best for you.

Our treatment coordinator will then review the treatment plans with you. She will help you get the most out of your dental insurance benefits and then, if needed, will help you with financing options to help fit any necessary dentistry into your budget and lifestyle. Additionally, sometimes there may be an option to start treatment on the same day or you can schedule for a different day.

We utilize leading-edge dental technology as part of our commitment to providing an exceptional level of dentistry.

You can trust you’re getting only the latest dental technology and treatments when you visit our office.

Digital x-rays

Digital X-Rays

Our digital X-rays emit less radiation, take images faster without any need for processing, and allow us to optimize the images so we can provide a more precise diagnosis.

Intraoral camera

Intraoral Camera

A picture explains what words never can, especially when it comes to your teeth. An intraoral camera can take pictures with such detail that it can show cracks and stress marks in a tooth that can’t be seen with the naked eye.

X-ray machine


The CEREC® system takes the normal, multi-visit traditional dental crown procedure and cuts it down. You’ll receive your permanent, natural-looking restoration faster than ever!

Cone beam computed tomography

Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Known as CBCT, this advanced imaging technique uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam. The cone beam rotates around your head to create a highly detailed 3D image of your mouth to help us accurately design your treatment plan.
