Appointments/First Visits
Everyone's time is valuable. Dr. Duarte and her staff not only believe this they put it into action with the shortest wait possible, usually within 15 minutes. And to expedite things even further, they have made forms available to download and complete at your convenience BEFORE you come in for your first visit. But you will not be rushed through your appointment. Dr. Duarte devotes all the time necessary to taking care of your individual dental needs.

Adults First Visit: Your first visit to our office enables us to meet you and identify your dental needs and to ensure that we are able to perform and maintain the necessary care for your optimal dental health. We perform a comprehensive examination that checks the integrity of each individual tooth and your periodontal health. This is done by both an oral and radiographic examination and a thorough discussion of your concerns and expectations as well as a review of your medical history. We believe that your dental health and treatment is a shared commitment. All of your questions and concerns are a priority for us and we want to create a dental plan that is right for you.

Children's First Visit: Dr. Duarte has a passion for caring for children. Our office believes in creating an environment that is fun and educational for children. The first dental visit is geared towards positive dental experiences with an emphasis on education on the care of your child's teeth, growth and development, including nutrition.
