Your First Appointment


We continue to welcome new patients to John M Schiefelbein, DMD, PLLC.  We value building long-lasting relationships based on service and trust with all of our patients and give each patient personalized service based on individual concerns and needs.


Your first visit is a time for us to get to know you and for you to get to know our team. We invite your questions and involvement in developing individualized treatment.

An important part of getting to know each patient is reviewing your medical and dental history. As part of that review, we will ask you to provide a list of your medications.  At your initial exam, Dr Schiefelbein will perform a comprehensive exam of your teeth, mouth, and jaws, including an oral-cancer screening in addition to gathering any necessary radiographs (digital X-rays) to help determine the best dental treatment for you. You will not be scheduled for a “cleaning” during this initial visit.

Dr Schiefelbein and our team will review your individualized treatment needs with you and will work to answer treatment questions and questions or concerns regarding insurance benefits, financial arrangements and scheduling needs to give you peace of mind with your dental care.


Please print and complete the forms on our Patient Forms page and bring them, along with your dental insurance card and photo id, to your first appointment. If you prefer, we can mail or email them to you before your first visit.  

We are here to assist you in every way possible so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you, and we look forward to welcoming you to our practice!
