First Visit

Dr. George Skoog and the team at Advocate Dental of Palatine look forward to welcoming you to your first dental appointment in Palatine, Illinois. This will be the chance for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you and your smile. Please remember to bring the following items:

  • The names and numbers of your previous dentist and your primary healthcare provider
  • Your insurance card
  • Your dental records and X-rays if you have access to them
  • A list of any medications you are taking, including vitamins and supplements
  • A list of any allergies or medical conditions

To schedule your initial visit with our dentists and team, call our office today at 847-359-8732.

When you come in for your first visit with our office, our dentists will complete a full examination of your smile and oral health so we can determine the best possible treatment plan moving forward. As part of the examination, we will inspect your teeth and smile for any dental conditions that may be developing so we can arrange treatment, if necessary. We will check for tooth decay, bone loss and periodontal disease and then analyze your bite (occlusion). We may also perform an oral cancer screening to check for any abnormalities in the tissues of your mouth that may cause cancer.

After we have completed your examination, our dentists and team will review their findings with you and the state of your oral health. If any treatment is needed, we will go over the treatment options with you to determine the best possible course of treatment for you and your smile. We will go over any concerns you have about your oral health and answer any questions you might have. We want you to feel confident in our care!

If you have any questions or would like to schedule your first appointment with us, we encourage you to call or visit our office today!

Patient Reviews

Dr. Prasad has really changed the way I feel about going to the Dentist. You are always making sure that I am comfortable. I went years without going to the Dentist when I was younger, and you definitely made me comfortable. You are kind and have great chair side manners. I even recommended my mom, my husband, and my kids. Keep doing what you are doing!

I have major anxiety about coming to dental visits. Dr. Prasad has been the only Dentist that puts me at ease. She is very patient and listens to her clients. Highly recommend!

I have been seeing Dr. Prasad for 15+ years and I’ve never been disappointed with the service or professionalism. I actually enjoy coming to see her. My wife has been a patient for 15+ years as well. Definitely my favorite Dentist Ever!!
