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. Skoog is very dedicated to his work and the well-being of his patients. On two different circumstances he was able to squeeze me in when he had a fully booked day. He is very good with understanding a patient’s apprehension of dentists. 🙂

So appreciative to Dr. Skoog for taking care of my husband’s terrible toothache during the holiday season. We are not patients of Dr. Skoog as we live out of state. He stayed late on a Saturday to alleviate my husband’s pain. We can’t thank him enough! Highly recommend.

Great care! The office is usually on time or early. Dr Skoog is very good and offers a lot of services eliminating the need to go to multiple providers which saves time. All staff is professional and friendly as well they make you feel like your their close friend.
