New Patients

WELCOME, NEW PATIENTS

what to expect at our Bend Dental Office

“I want a dental office near me. One that treats me so well, I actually look forward to visits. One that has an atmosphere and a team that puts me at ease and erases all my fears. But most importantly, I want a dental office that has all the services, techniques, and technology that I would expect from a much larger, big-city office. Can I find that here in Bend?”

The answer is a resounding YES! And you found it all under one roof at Ponderosa Dental Center. We love seeing the reaction of our new patients when they realize just how nice their experience with us will be – on the first visit and every visit thereafter.

“New in town, a little nervous about finding a new dental place as my previous one was so great. They made me feel welcome and confident about their abilities… great beginning!” – JACKIE JOHNSON

“I had the best dental experience at Ponderosa! The office is very, very clean, beautiful, and the space I was in faced the mountainside and a beautiful waterfall!” – NANCY KERRIGAN

FIRST VISIT EXPERIENCE

New beginnings can be very exciting, and we’d love your first visit with us to be an experience you won’t forget. We welcome you to our office with open arms, show you around our beautiful space, and introduce you to your team. We want you to feel right at home! Once you are in the dental chair, we’ll take some time to get to know you, review your history, and find out what you need and expect. Then we move right along to your comprehensive exam. Every exam you receive from your Ponderosa Dental Center team is comprehensive, but your first one is especially so. If you need a cleaning, we’ll take care of that too. Once everything is completed and your smile feels refreshed and renewed, we will sit down with you, review our findings, and create a dental plan. You’ll leave knowing exactly what is going on in your mouth, educated on your needs, and in full control of your smile’s future.

NEW PATIENT FORMS

We know exactly what it’s like – sitting in the waiting room, balancing a clipboard on your lap, and trying to remember all the pertinent details of your medical and dental history. Who doesn’t draw a blank in those situations? That’s why we have made all those forms available right here! Just download them, fill them out, and bring them along. Clipboard not required!

FIRST VISIT EXPERIENCE

Isn’t it nice to be pampered once in a while? Especially when it is time for something like your dental appointment? We want it to be a fun and relaxing experience, not a chore. We have:

  • Downloadable patient paperwork online
  • iPads available for your paperwork if your forget to do it online
  • TVs in treatment rooms and waiting room to keep you entertained before and during treatment
  • Large windows overlooking a natural rock structure with a waterfall for the most serene visuals you’ve ever had during a dental treatment
  • Blankets to snuggle under, keep off the chill, and help you feel secure
  • Neck pillows to cradle you in comfort
  • Noise-canceling headphones so you can listen to whatever you’d like
  • Lip balms to soothe away dryness
  • Take home hygiene bags so you have all your home hygiene needs right at your fingertips

We think you are worth it!
