Your First Visit

_DSC0001“We are so thankful that you have considered us and look forward to getting to know you and your family.” –Eric S. Harris, DMD

We welcome new patients of all ages to our practice! Please feel free to print off the new patient forms and fill them out to expedite the paperwork at your first appointment.

For those who are joining our family of patients it might seem out of the ordinary to be scheduled for a 60-minute new patient visit with the dentist and hygienist. This time is reserved especially for you to ensure that you receive a thorough cleaning, exam, and consultation with Dr. Harris. He looks forward to getting to know you and your family and to talking with you about your oral health and expectations for your smile. Our goal is not only to take care of our patients’ dental needs, but also to get to know each person by name and treat them like we’d want our own family to be treated. We look forward to seeing you smile!


We strive to run on time so you won’t be kept waiting and we ask you to arrive for your appointments on time as well. We understand that you are busy and your time is valuable to us. Dr. Harris only deviates from his schedule in the event of dental emergencies that need to be taken care of immediately.

For your convenience, we use LighthouseTM. This system enables us to use emails and text messages to your cell phone to conveniently remind you of your appointment weeks, days, or even hours before you are scheduled to visit us.

Once we have decided on a solution for your needs and wants and have worked out financial arrangements, we will do everything we can to serve you most appropriately. In many cases, we can complete most or all of your dental treatment in one visit! Ask us about this option!

Should you need to change or reschedule a reserved appointment time, please call our office as soon as possible so that we can make the necessary changes and so that another patient can be seen sooner.

Our knowledgeable staff can answer any questions about the schedule. Just call us at (334) 252-9000, or drop by the office and have some coffee! We always love to see you!
