First Visit

At your first visit to Mendota Springs Dentistry as a new patient, we want you to feel welcomed and comfortable the moment you step into our practice. Our dental practice has made it a commitment to keep our appointments on schedule in order to value your time. Vivienne Zhang, DDS, leads our dental practice with excellence and a dedication to patient comfort. Our entire dental staff desires to make sure you leave your appointment feeling confident in the care that you received and looking forward to returning for regular dental appointments and any other dental treatment that you need.

During Your Appointment

During your first appointment at Mendota Springs Dentistry we will take an X-ray of your teeth in order to evaluate their current condition and positions within your mouth. Having a clear picture of your mouth allows us to precisely clean your teeth and provide any needed treatment.

Our dental hygienist will use these clear digital X-ray pictures to diagnose any areas of concern inside your mouth before they can even be detected by the human eye. With this precise picture, your teeth can be thoroughly cleaned and areas of concern can be evaluated by our dentist, Dr. Zhang.

A thorough examination and cleaning are done not only to leave you with a clean set of teeth, but also to leave your mouth as healthy as possible when you leave our practice. An overabundance of plaque can lead to gingivitis, or an even more dangerous form of gum disease called periodontitis. If there are signs that your gums are infected, we will offer solutions for deep cleaning your gums and teeth in order to restore their health. No procedure will ever be performed without your full knowledge and approval. Dr. Zhang will take the time to meet with you and discuss needed treatment and answer any questions that you may have.

Contact Mendota Springs Dentistry today to schedule your first appointment. We are pleased to be able to perform many simple dental procedures after your first cleaning in order to promote optimal oral health right away. Our top priority at Mendota Springs Dentistry is to help you achieve and maintain the healthiest mouth possible. We will offer support, encouragement, and flexible financing any time more extensive dental work is needed.

Big plus they offered me a fluoride free polish option.

    Tori W.
  • I have been looking for a dentist since moving to Madison. This practice is great. No up selling, bill padding, and conservative dentistry which means they don’t continuously look for things to fix that don’t need to be fixed. Thank you Anna Leigh, Hannah, and Dr. Tobias for being so great to me on my first visit.
