Welcoming New Dental Patients in Harrisonburg

We're Looking Forward to Meeting You

First Visit Experience

New dental patients in Harrisonburg choose Smallwood Dental Solutions because they have heard our approach to care is unlike any other! On your first visit, you can expect a thorough periodontal assessment, oral cancer exam, and essential x-rays. If time permits, we’ll also do a cleaning. If your teeth and gums need scaling and root planing, we’ll schedule it. This appointment takes about 90 minutes. Premedication requirements will be discussed if needed.

X-rays are crucial for diagnosis. If you’ve had recent x-rays (full mouth within 3 years, bitewings within 1 year), request them from your previous dentist and send them to us before your visit. If not, we’ll take new ones. If your previous dentist’s information reaches us with a Release Form, we’ll digitally transfer your current x-rays.

Our practice is for all ages and focuses on family and cosmetic dentistry. We offer a full range of cosmetic services—just ask about addressing specific concerns. Please note that we have a 48-hour cancellation policy; contact us if you cannot keep your appointment and need to reschedule.

I’ve been a regular with Dr. Smallwood since they first came to Harrisonburg some years ago and I can highly recommend them. Where would my teeth be without them?

I have been going to this practice for ten years. They have always shown kindness, friendliness, and caring. Thank you for taking the time, and your expertise in guiding me to a healthier smile.

I enjoyed every minute of my appointment. Everyone is so nice. They not only deliver superb dental care, they treat the patient as a real human person, not just a mouth. I went home inspired, threw out the peanut brittle, and started to faithfully use my waterpik.
