we love new faces

The dental office can be an intimidating place to visit - especially if you don't know what to expect. We invite you to come see what it means to be a part of the Dovetail Family. It is a judgement free zone here. Our goal is to partner with you to help you achieve a healthy mouth. Just the fact that you are reading this shows you are moving in the right direction! We are looking forward to meeting you!

what to expect your first visit

When you schedule your appointment, we will get your dental insurance information (if applicable) so we can have everything ready for you when you arrive. We value you, so in addition to striving to keep your scheduled time, we also provide downloadable forms for you to complete at your convenience and bring with you to your first visit. 

After we greet you, Wendy, our treatment coordinator, will get to know you and answer any questions you may have about the practice. She will then bring you to meet your dental assistant who will update any information for you, take x-rays (if applicable) and new patient photos. Your dental assistant will then introduce you to one of the doctors. Dr. Cariello or Dr. Senat will meet with you, listen to your concerns, carefully examine your overall oral health, and provide you with options for your treatment.  

Although the doctors will offer recommendations to accomplish your goals, you will make the decision. You are in complete control of your dental care. After meeting with the dentist, if your dental cleaning is scheduled the same day, you would then be introduced to one of our exceptional hygienists who uses expertise and care to provide you with a cleaning and other services you may need. If your dental cleaning is on a different day, one of our amazing hygienists will give you the same unprecedented experience on your scheduled day, providing you with a cleaning and other services you may need.
