Before Your Appointment
Please complete our New Patient Forms. DOWNLOAD our General Information, Medical Information, and Personal History sheet. You can either fax the completed forms to us at (415) 499-1713,

When you arrive, you’ll be greeted with a smile and welcomed as a member of our dental family. Please turn in your completed New Patient Forms if you haven’t done so already. And then, sit back, relax and enjoy our warm and friendly atmosphere.
After your initial consultation, you’ll receive a thorough dental examination. Our exams evaluate your lips and cheeks, TMJ (temporo mandibular joints) and lymph nodes, the integrity of each tooth, the supporting bone and gum, as well as your bite. They include a screening for oral cancer and other pathological conditions. Find out more...
To obtain a full evaluation, dental X-rays are usually required. Please have all previously taken X-rays forwarded to our office. The need for future X-rays is considered on a case-by-case basis. Find out more...
After Your Appointment
You’ll receive a letter from us that reports our findings and explains your treatment options. Dr. Ochev will go over these findings and options with you at your next appointment.
Our primary focus is to help you achieve optimum oral health. Treatments are prioritized in order of importance, taking into account long-term goals and comprehensive care. We encourage you to ask as many questions as necessary. We want you to feel totally comfortable before moving forward.
Insurance and Payment Plans
We accept many insurance plans, specifically the ones that allow you to choose your own dentist. Please take comfort in knowing that we work hard to help you maximize your insurance benefits.
