What To Expect At My First Visit

Most new patients schedule their first visit for a teeth cleaning, x-rays and a careful oral exam by Dr. Messer.  He will check for things like tooth decay, gum disease and other risks related to your overall health.

From start to finish, this first visit usually lasts for about 1 1/2 hours, as we want to give your smile the attention it deserves.

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.  Make sure that your new patient paperwork is filled out at lease 24 hours prior to your appointment.


Also, feel free to take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with Dr. Messer and the other team members at Southwind Dental Care. We look forward to your first visit!

I have been to several dentists in the Memphis Area and I have finally found THE ONE!! Dr. Messer is the best dentist I have ever been to. I have complete confidence in any procedure that he performs and I can't imagine ever going to any other dentist.
