Your First Visit
Most new patients will see Dr. Schumacher first, and he’ll begin the appointment by having a brief chat with you about your dental goals, and then he’ll perform a comprehensive exam. Afterward, he’ll explain his findings to you and go over your treatment options. You’ll then have a chance to ask questions. Once you and Dr. Schumacher have agreed on a treatment plan, you’ll be escorted to the front desk to schedule your next visit.
