We’re Welcoming New Patients

Here at Greater Long Island Dental, we know that everyone is one of a kind. You’re not like anyone else! So why should you get the same first dental appointment as someone with different needs and smile goals?

Let’s take a look at how we help new patients feel welcomed, relaxed, and at ease as they join the Greater Long Island Dental family. We like to offer our patients choices, allowing them to make the decision that’s right for them.


If your first visit is for a consultation, our focus will be on answering your questions and helping you feel confident in your choice to visit our office.

During your consultation, your dentist will then take digital photos of your teeth and review them with you to create a treatment plan. Finally, we’ll review insurance and financing options and schedule your next appointment.

Expect your consultation to take about 30 minutes.

New Patient Exams

If you’re ready to dive right in, schedule your new patient exam. At this visit, you’ll still meet with your dentist just like in a consultation. However, the focus of the new patient exam is on completing a thorough exam, including digital photography of your teeth, a gum health check, and any needed x-rays.

Your dentist will explain what they’ve found, their recommended treatments, and what comes next. Our goal is to work with you to develop an affordable treatment plan that fits your lifestyle. We want to help you feel confident about our plan for your dental health.

We’ll finish your new patient exam by answering questions about insurance and financial options. Then we’ll schedule your next follow-up visit.
