New Patients


Your first visit to John O. Bowcock, Jr., D.D.S. involves a few special steps so that we can get to know you. To understand what to expect, please read through this page. You’ll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There’s also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can also save some time by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance of your appointment.

Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with our team.  We look forward to your first visit.


Here's what to expect during your first appointment. Prior to your arrival, we ask that you please print out and complete the patient questionnaire, medical history, and insurance forms prior to your arrival. We also ask that you arrive 15-20 minutes early for your appointment. This will allow us to enter your information into the computer so that you can be seen at your scheduled time.

Preventive dentistry is our goal for every patient. It involves the daily care, good nutrition, and periodic check-ups and cleanings that maintain good dental health already achieved. Preventive dentistry may not be where we start with every patient, but it's where we like to finish.

We will take about an hour to examine your teeth, gums, jaw alignment, and soft tissues. The exam will also include a blood pressure check and oral cancer screening. We will take a series of radio-graphs to diagnose cavities, abscesses, or other dental pathology that needs treatment.
