New Patient Information

We can’t wait to meet you!

Always welcoming new patients

At TLC Escondido, first appointments take about an hour and a half and include:

  • Digital x-rays
  • Full set of intraoral high definition photos
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Gentle examination
  • Personalized treatment plan

We’ll schedule your dental cleaning separately from your first appointment. This gives us the chance to evaluate your health and determine what type of cleaning you need.

Keeping our patients safe

In response to COVID-19, we’re following enhanced guidelines outlined by the ADA and CDC to confidently serve our community. You’ll be cared for in a sanitized space, with carefully sterilized equipment, by a compassionate team in enhanced PPE.  

We’ve also updated our processes to ensure your safety:

  • Spacing out appointments
  • Pre-visit health check
  • Contactless check-in
  • Social distancing maintained

What to expect from your first visit

When you book your first appointment at our Escondido dentist office, our entire team will celebrate! We love welcoming new patients and you’re no exception.

Complete new patient paperwork ahead of time or come a few minutes early to fill out forms here in our friendly waiting room. You might also enjoy a complimentary warm beverage or spend a few minutes chatting with our front desk team.

When your dental assistant and hygienist are ready for you, we’ll get you settled into a patient room and make sure you’re comfy. Throughout your appointment, we promise to deliver personalized, easygoing care and our undivided attention. You’ll leave with that lovely, slippery clean teeth feeling and a plan for any follow-up care.

Payment options

Our Escondido dentist office happily accepts a combination of payment methods:

  • Most major insurances
  • Cash, money order, and personal checks
  • All major credit cards

No insurance? Our in-house membership plans can help you afford the care you need. 

We also offer CareCredit as a great option for financing your care — it’s like a credit card for your health expenses. You may even qualify for 0% interest. Apply today or let us know if you have any questions.

I’ve only had excellent care at TLC. The staff is wonderful and bend over backward to help you out. I’ve never had a crown that didn’t need constant adjusting until I went to TLC. She popped it in and it was perfect. I highly recommend going here.

I recently was the Matron of Honor for my sister’s wedding so I used whitening strips I got at TLC and my teeth have never been whiter! I felt my absolute best for my sister’s big day and I LOVE my sparkling white teeth, thank you TLC for recommending the whitening strips!

This is a judgement-free zone.

If you haven’t seen an Escondido dentist in a while, it’s okay. Let’s not dwell on the past. What matters now is that you’re choosing to get your dental health back on track. We feel incredibly honored that you’ve chosen us as your partner on this journey toward better health. We won’t let you down.

Need a second opinion?

If you’ve received a dental diagnosis from another dentist and would like to double check your diagnosis, we can help with a free second opinion. We also offer free dental implant consultations.

During your free consultation, we’ll review your treatment plan, medical history, and x-rays. Our goal is to assess your oral health and answer all your questions as we explore the best options for you.
