New patients

We take pride in learning how we can make a difference for each patient, because goals are unique for each individual.

Treating individual needs

We find that individuals strive for different levels of health and we respect that. Many of our patients come to us seeking regular general dental and hygienic care, while others have sought us for our expertise in reconstructive, implant, and cosmetic dentistry. Some have even contacted us for a second opinion. The most important thing that we can do is provide you with honest and good information when it comes to your oral health; we are here to answer any questions you may have regarding your dental care. 

At the Dentist

Your first visit

Our office typically reserves one hour for your initial new patient comprehensive examination. We will provide you with New Patient Forms prior to your first visit, available for download below or via email or mail. During your initial exam, Dr. Milin or Dr. Bacalar will take a comprehensive medical and dental history, evaluate the hard and soft tissues in the mouth, and take necessary x-rays and appropriate digital photos. We also evaluate the integrity of existing restorations, check your occlusion (how the teeth function together) and your jaw joint, and discuss any cosmetic concerns. After a thoughtful analysis, diagnostic findings are blended with your needs and desires to create an individualized treatment plan.


Privacy policy

We take patient confidentiality seriously and maintain robust security and privacy measures.

Hear from our patients

I am a new patient to this office, and everyone has been very friendly and welcoming.  There are many protocols in place to keep everyone safe from Covid. The hygienist is professional, thorough and puts you at ease. The assistants are concerned about your comfort and help you in any way they can. Dr. Bacalar explains everything, listens carefully to you and answers any questions you may have. His skills are excellent, his touch is light and he checks and double checks so you can feel confidence in whatever work you have had.
