Before Your First Appointment

Make sure you plan enough time from work or school to not feel rushed. If you limited time to spare, we recommend scheduling your appointment for our late afternoon appointment time, so you can go home after your visit with us. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out any additional paperwork, take photocopies of your driver’s license and insurance card, and to prepare your complimentary amenities for your appointment. We will collect copays, deductibles, and non-covered services at the time of your appointment. 

During Your First Appointment

We want to know you and will ask a series of questions designed to assess your health and wellness which allows us to provide treatment safely. Our compassionate and highly skilled hygienist will begin with a review of your medical and dental history, measure your blood pressure, record your pulse, take necessary x-rays, clean, polish, and floss your teeth, and record gum measurements. Once completed, Dr. Krump will carefully listen to any problems or concerns you have and will review your x-rays and discuss treatment options. If your conditions or concerns require further review or discussion, a follow-up consultation will be scheduled. 

This time is very important for you and for us.  It allows us to customize and tailor your individual treatment options to meet your specific desires and needs.  We are all on a path heading somewhere.  It's our job to provide options for you, and help you choose the right path for you, then help guide you along your way, so each step you take leads you closer to your goal of overall health and wellness.  

After Your First Appointment

If your mouth is sore, we recommend taking over-the-counter pain relievers. Don't hesitate to call our office between visits if you have any additional questions or experiencing any pain or discomfort. We strongly suggest scheduling a dental exam and routine cleaning every six months. Dr. Krump or your dental hygienist will provide you with details regarding the next steps if you need to come in for specific appointments or treatments. 

Dental Implants

Before the development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. 

Teeth Whitening

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.

Tooth Extractions

Whatever the reason, tooth extraction is more often than not a very routine procedure. How straightforward this minor surgery is will depend on where the tooth to be extracted is located in the mouth, and what its roots are like.


Mouthguards fit over your teeth to protect the crowns, tongue, cheeks, and gums during sports or to offer protection for night-time teeth grinding.
