What to expect at your first visit

We are so excited to welcome you to River Oaks Dental!  On your first visit, you will be greeted by our welcoming patient care coordinator, Rhonda.  After completing your paperwork in our relaxing reception room, a team member will escort you to your private treatment room, complete with massaging chairs and dual televisions for your enjoyment. Watch your favorite cooking show on Food Network or browse Netflix for your favorite series or movie!

Dr. Rachel Monteiro will review your medical history, dental history, and any concerns and questions you may have about your oral health.  If necessary, we will take low-dose digital x-rays, perform a baseline measurement of your gum health, check your teeth for cavities and cracks, and assess the health of existing restorations.  Dr. Monteiro will also perform a thorough oral cancer exam and assessment of the TMJ’s.  We will check the fit and function of any removable appliance (dentures, partials, night guards, athletic mouth guards, retainers, etc), so don’t forget to bring it with you! 

After these diagnostic procedures are complete, Dr. Monteiro will discuss her findings and recommended treatment with you and address any questions or concerns you may have.  You will be provided with a comprehensive treatment plan and estimate.  Most times, we can begin your treatment the same day!  

We typically allot time for a cleaning to be done at the first visit as well.  If you prefer to have a cleaning at a subsequent appointment, please let us know!

I had the best dental experience I’ve ever at River Oaks Dental. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Their self pay is actually really good! I got a cleaning and some extra work done and was so happy with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Monteiro!

Super awesome experience!! Dr M did my check up and cleaning. She explained everything to me. Very understanding and great to deal with. Nice clean office. Great office staff. She was super fast on my cleaning...I didn’t even know she was doing the cleaning until it was done. Would definitely recommend. ☺️

I needed a cleaning and decided to try River Oaks Dental. This place is fantastic. Everything is brand new and state-of-the-art, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The whole office environment is comfortable and relaxing. I was blown away by the entertainment options (huge TVs) and comfortable patient chair with built-in massaging function. I’ve never had a better experience at a Dental office. Thank you Dr. Monteiro and River Oaks Dental.
