  • Become acquainted and discuss your priorities
  • Review of your medical and dental history forms
  • Complete series of digital radiographs of your teeth
  • Periodontal (gum) disease evaluation
  • An oral comprehensive evaluation including: Discussion time to review treatment options and answers any questions you may have

    • Clinical Diagnosis of cavities and other recommended treatment with the use of our digital images
    • Tempromandibular joint (your jaw joint) movement (TMJ)


Lakeshore Dental prides itself on being a dentist for the whole family. A child’s memories of their first dental appointment can stay with them for years to come, so to ensure the best possible experience, we invite children to come and watch mom or dad’s appointment. This helps your child feel more comfortable during their appointment, and if time allows we can give them a ride in the chair or polish their teeth!

We ask that any children under the age of 18 are accompanied by a parent or guardian; if not able to be present, please send your child with written consent for treatment and any updated health information which should be provided upon checking in.


Appointments are scheduled daily during our regular office hours. For your convenience, early morning and evening appointments are available upon request

Upon arriving for your appointment, please register at the desk before being seated.

At this time, please share with us any changes in:

  • Address
  • Employment
  • Telephone Number
  • Insurance Coverage

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining your healthy smile! No matter what your age, visiting the dentist on a regular basis will help keep your teeth and gums healthy, and your smile bright! We at Lakeshore Dental understand that each individual has different treatment needs and recall schedule. We will customize appointments to meet your dental needs and to help aid in your best overall dental health. We understand that you have a busy schedule, so while we like to make sure your appointments are informative and purposeful, we also like to make sure they don’t stop you from doing the things you love.

When it’s time for your next dental appointment, please call (920) 682-7881, and our friendly office team will be ready to help you schedule an appointment.

In those rare instances, please call us as soon as possible to let us know so we can make the appropriate adjustments in other patient schedules. Thank you!
