Welcome to Your First Appointment

If you are a new patient at Brite Smiles, we welcome you to our dental office. Located in Des Plaines, we look forward to helping you feel good about your smile and the way you look. Providing high-quality materials and first-rate dental care, you won’t find another team or the availability of services like ours anywhere else. To help you prepare for your initial appointment, we invite you to review the information below. Feel free to call us if you have any questions.

Your First Dental Visit

When arriving for your appointment, you will check in at the front desk where we will verify your benefits. With only minimal wait times, a member of our team will escort you back to a treatment room where we will take digital X-rays and discuss your medical history. After charting is complete, Dr. Patel will come by to thoroughly examine your mouth and recommend any necessary treatment options. From there, we will provide a professional cleaning to remove any hardened plaque and tartar, ensuring your smile is healthier before you leave.
