First Visit

First impressions are important. When you visit the offices of Gardner & Midgette for the first time as a new patient, you will immediately get a feel for what we are all about. Our offices are like a home away from home, which is ideal as we consider our patients part of our extended family. You will always be greeted with a warm smile, and all your needs will be met throughout your visit.

While there are some formalities to get out of the way, a member of our team will guide you through the process from beginning to end. We want you to feel just as relaxed on your first visit as you will on your fiftieth. Your first visit is our chance to get to know each other. So, we will take the time to listen to your needs and concerns which allows us to tailor our services to you and your family.

During Your Appointment

During your initial appointment, Gardner & Midgette will familiarize himself with your dental and medical history. You will receive a comprehensive exam to assess your needs and help us develop a dental plan of action for you. We can offer you a full cleaning to get you off to a good start with our practice and discuss any recommended treatments you may need.

If you have any concerns or fears, we encourage you to discuss them with the team during your first appointment. We are here to make your experience with Gardner & Midgette as comfortable as possible. To help you relax, we offer the use of pillows and blankets, and there is music available to all our patients. Contact our office
today to schedule your first appointment.

I called for an emergency appointment as a first time client at 8:30 am and they scheduled me same day at 10 am. Everyone is so personable, and the atmosphere is warming. Dr. Gardner is great! I would recommend to anyone looking for a new dentist home.

Love Dr, Gardner and his staff. they are all so caring and friendly. I have always been petrified of going to the dentist but they have cured me of that. Molly is so gentle when she cleans my teeth that i am not scared to let her do it. Thanks for being such a great team all these years!

The best and kindest dentist in Richmond. My girls love Dr. Gardner. Yesterday, when her name was called, our youngest just skipped down the hallway while I was getting some information from the hygienist!!! She literally hopped to it!! So funny. Recommend to any family with little people. My oldest spent the whole time reading a very funny educational children’s book “open wide school” about all the teeth being at school. So awesome!!!
