Welcome, New Patients!

Are you new to our practice, or still thinking about setting up an appointment with us? If so, we’re glad you’re here. Many of our patients had unfortunate experiences with other dentists in the past. Unfortunately, this often resulted in avoiding dental care or other, similar, problems. If that’s the case for you, we couldn’t be more happy to help you keep your mouth healthy. Even if it’s been a while, no need to worry. We know how difficult it can be to get to the dentist. For this reason, we won’t shame you, blame you, or make you feel bad for your dental care. It’s important to realize that our team members are simply glad you’re here. Know this: Old and new patients alike will be cherished here. Welcome to your new dental home.

In effect, if you are one of our new patients, we’re looking forward to working with you! Here at Northstar Dental, located on North 33rd Street in Lincoln, we also strive to provide every client the best treatment possible. We know that dental phobia is a real concern for many people. For that reason, our team has developed some excellent ways to help put you at ease and to provide genuine, gentle dental care. This also includes our brand new Zen Room, which is built for patients who don’t want any dental discomfort.

The Nebraska Family Dentistry Standard

As you may or may not be aware, Northstar Dental is a proud part of Nebraska Family Dentistry. We’re working hard with our sister locations and other Lincoln organizations to bring you the best overall wellness we can.

Here at Northstar, we’re dedicated to the highest quality care for you, the patient. We not only want to take excellent care of your teeth, but we also want to make sure your experience is pleasant and comfortable. We believe that dental care shouldn’t be as painful as it can be at times. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably had a bad experience at the dentist at some point. We understand that those negative experiences stay with you for a long time.  For that reason, our team is extra hard at work trying to offer the utmost in dental treatment, education, compassion, and relationship-building. Especially for new patients, this is the ideal combination!

Above all, this high standard of dentistry isn’t exclusive to Northstar. We’ve got several convenient sister locations dispersed throughout Lincoln, all of which offer the same exceptional care. If you need great dental care but are not near us, check out the other NFD locations. They’ll be more than happy to see you.

A few things to remember for your first appointment with us:

  • At the present time, please make sure to fill out the new patient forms located here. If you are not able to print them out ahead of time, please arrive a few minutes early to your first appointment so you can fill them out in the office.
  • If you have dental insurance, please remember to bring your card with you as well as any the primary subscriber information so we can complete this information.
  • Finally, do not become a stranger. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist two times a year. We agree with this recommendation for a regular cleaning and exam to maintain your best oral health.
  • At your first appointment, our hygienist will perform a routine cleaning or discuss having you back for a deep cleaning if necessary. Your dentist will meet with you to complete your exam, discuss a recommended treatment, and develop a treatment plan for moving forward.
