Your First Visit to Riverwalk Smile Dentistry

We are your Dentist in Rock Hill SC 29730. At Riverwalk Smile Dentistry, we want you to experience a comfortable and stress-free dental visit. We designate at least full hour for our new patients. During this time, Dr. Seth talks to the patient, takes X-rays, performs a comprehensive oral exam, and creates a diagnostic treatment plan. At the end of your first visit, our office manager, will discuss your treatment plan and the associated fees. At your first visit you can expect the following:

  • Attentive & Helpful Staff
  • Comfortable, Worry-Free Care
  • Easy Check-in & Check-out Procedures

We empower you to make smart choices about your dental care and smile enhancements. We encourage you to ask questions during your visits so that you feel informed and at ease with your treatment plan. We always want you to feel comfortable with the procedure recommendations and financing options.

Most of the time we can start any additional dental treatment, such as a filling, immediately after your first visit. This enables us to fix problems before they get worse, and it allows you to save time! If you need more extensive dental work, we will talk through your treatment plan, your financial options, and your availability to schedule an appointment so that you feel comfortable continuing treatment.
