Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Millis, MA
If You Have Questions Prior to Your Visit
We invite you to read this page where you will discover answers to some of your essential dental questions.
What can I expect at my first appointment? Can I get my teeth cleaned?
Before your first visit, print off the new patient forms, complete them at home, and please bring them with you to save time. We are aware of everyone’s busy lives and make it a point to run on time, but keep in mind that many patients like to arrive early just to read our magazine collection, watch the flat screen, or relax next to the soothing waterfall. Please come five minutes before your first visit and feel free to call the office with any questions. We are happy to help.
When you first arrive, you will meet Audrey, who will assist you with your paperwork and any questions. You will then be escorted to a comfortable treatment room where you will meet Dr. Davies and his assistant. After reviewing your dental and medical histories, Dr. Davies will take the time to speak with you about your specific concerns and goals. He will then perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and an oral cancer screening while his assistant charts all of the information on the computer. They will take a series of digital photographs of your teeth and smile, and if necessary, will recommend some digital radiographs to complete the digital record. We are happy to contact your previous dentist about sending us your records. If you do not show any signs of gum disease and have been keeping up with routine dental visits, we will be happy to clean your teeth that day.
After the examination, Dr. Davies will review his findings with you and discuss treatment options. A treatment plan will be established based on your needs and priorities. If desired, a written copy of the treatment plan can be provided. Audrey will then schedule your next appointment and review your insurance coverage and payment options. As a courtesy, all appointments will be confirmed by phone the day before they are scheduled. We request at least a 24-hour notice if it is necessary to reschedule an appointment.
Is your Dental office up to date? Does it offer the latest Dental technologies?
Absolutely! Dr. Davies and our team complete more than the state-required hours of continuing education each year to stay current on the latest products, technology, and techniques to provide the utmost dental care.

What if I have a Dental emergency?
If you experience a dental emergency, we urge you to call right away. To ensure the care you receive is the care you need, we may conduct a short interview and exam so we can properly address the issue in a timely manner. If you experience an after hours emergency, you will be directed to the on-call number to reach Dr. Davies.
