What To Expect

Comfort and convenience are the hallmarks of Dr. Calvin's office operations.  Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you.  During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information such as your medical history and give you time to meet your dentist.  To help ensure convenience, please visit the office tab for information on appointment scheduling, in-network insurances and payment options.  

Initial Oral Examination

Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, periodontal probing and charting, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.  We will need to take x-rays on all new patients, the only exception being pregnant women.  Our x-rays are digital (low radiation exposure) and consist of a panoramic x-ray to enable proper diagnosis of anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth, as well as bite-wing x-rays series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For patients who are overly anxious about their dental treatment, we prescribe a drug called Halcion. This is taken one hour before your appointment and puts you into a relaxed state to where you don't remember much of the appointment. The doctor is still able to communicate with you during the visit. We have had excellent results with this type of sedation.  However, patients must have a driver and cannot take a cab or use a ride sharing service.  As Halcion is an amnesiac, should you not remember your visit and have questions, please give us a call.  We also prefer payment for services to be handled before the Halcion appointment.  That enables a much smoother check out process after treatment.

  • "I first came to Dr. Calvin's office after years of not going to a dentist. My hygienist Shannon, along with the rest of the staff have been amazing through the many years that I've been coming to the office. I started off with one of the worst set of teeth, crooked, stained, massive tartar build up, to having perfect, straight & amazing teeth. I cannot thank Dr. Calvin and his amazing staff enough. I'm proud to smile and show off my teeth.

  • "It is absolutely my pleasure to recommend Dr. Calvin and his staff for dental care. I have been a patient of his for many years and although we moved out of the area in 1998, I continue to travel to his office for dental care twice each year. The dental work that Dr. Calvin accomplished for me many years ago continues to stand the test of time and I am very grateful for his efforts. Without a doubt, I would confidently urge anyone seeking first rate dental care contact Dr. Calvin at their earliest opportunity. Dr. Calvin and his staff will take good care of you.

    Candi D.
  • "My husband had horrible teeth as a youth and after a particularly severe infection, he had almost all of his teeth removed and you made his dentures. He chose you because he had heard you were, 'a good doc and that you'd take payments.' He has been very happy since you took care of his problem teeth and he smiles all the time.
    Patients since 2009"
    Cathy G.
  • "I had gone to numerous dentists in the area but none have been as kind or informative as Dr. Calvin. I have overcome many of my 'dental phobias' since becoming his patient. I am always put at ease by his great staff and I always get answers to my questions. Thank you for all you do. We will be patients for life!

  • "I first visited Dr. Calvin's office in 2015 after seeing three other dentists in Colorado Springs. It turned out that I had a complicated tooth problem. Dr. Calvin recognized what needed to be done and made the right decision to solve it, which produced the best outcome for me. Dr. Calvin clearly takes pride in his profession. From the warm welcome from Nicky at reception to the cheerful greeting of Angie on the telephone, Dr. Calvin and his staff Shannon, B.J. and Andrea, form a team that offers the right balance of skill and experience.
