Your First Visit

What to Expect

If you are visiting our practice for the first time, we will ensure that you feel welcomed and have a comfortable experience. We will perform a comprehensive dental exam, record X-rays, and carry out a screening exam for oral cancer. We will also perform dental cleaning to help you maintain optimum oral health. If you feel anxious or hesitant, let us know so we can take the right measures to make you feel relaxed.

Amenities & Technology

Our dental team at Insight Dental Group uses cutting-edge technology to provide our patients with efficient, safe, and comfortable oral care.


3D technology like CEREC has revolutionized the field of dentistry. It allows us to fabricate crowns and other dental restorations in a short time and requires fewer visits than the traditional methods.

TVs in Treatment Rooms

We offer high-resolution TVs in our treatment rooms to help patients relax. Using them, we can also show enlarged dental scans on the screen so our patients can understand their oral health better.

Sleep Study Machine

Our clinic has a sleep study machine that helps us evaluate the symptoms of sleep apnea and determine if our patients will benefit from a nighttime device.

Intraoral Cameras

No need to go through goopy impressions anymore. With the use of intraoral cameras, we can visualize your oral cavity in detail and record high-resolution images that can be instantly seen on a screen.

CEREC Primescan & Primemill

This technology enables us to capture three-dimensional, crisp images of the teeth and surrounding regions. Using this data, the Primemill technology can create custom dental crowns within a single visit.

Digital Scanner

Thanks to our digital scanner, you can say goodbye to messy and uncomfortable impressions. It captures high-resolution images and creates a digital impression of your teeth, eliminating the need for putty impressions.
