First Visit

Modern Family Dentistry in Chesapeake, Virginia

What to expect at your first visit

You can’t entrust your oral health care to just anyone. You want a dentist who will listen to your concerns and help you achieve your highest level of oral health. At Modern Family Dentistry, we’re always welcoming new patients.

We understand how intimidating it can be to find just the right dentist to provide your oral care, so we strive to make your first visit and all future visits a pleasant experience.

First, we will take the time to listen to you. We want to understand what your dental health goals are, answer any questions you may have, and address potential concerns. To allow time for this, we may ask you to show up to your first appointment just 15 minutes early.

Your first visit will include a comprehensive oral exam and may include a series of x-rays so that we can get a good look at your teeth, gums, mouth, and jawbone.

From there, we can create a treatment plan that provides you with excellent dental care services to help you achieve your optimal oral health—on a timeline and budget that works for you.

We will work with you to make sure you achieve the smile that you have always wanted and to make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed while we take care of your dental needs.


Contact our office today to talk to us about your goals for a healthy and appealing smile. We will listen and work with you to achieve those goals. Our patient-centered care will make you glad you chose Modern Family Dentistry as your dental provider.

“A little over two years ago I had to switch from Dr. Midgette’s Dentistry due to an insurance change. Recently I was able to obtain coverage that listed Dr. Midgette as an approved provider. It feels sooo good to be back home!”
