First Visit Expectations

Richard D. - ★★★★★

"Dr. Shawn Eckstrom has been my dentist for over a decade. I would recommend Dr. Eckstrom to anyone living in the Lane County area. Him and his staff are very friendly and professional and treat all their patients with special care."

Mathias G. - ★★★★★

"Very friendly, professional staff. From the receptionist at the front to Dr. Shawn himself, everyone here is fantastic. Kelly, who did my teeth cleaning was SUPER nice and literally the only person that hasn't hurt my gums during a cleaning. If you're looking for a new dentist...heck even if you aren't, I would recommend them. You won't regret it."

Finding a comfortable dental home enhances your quality of life. Our welcome starts before you even step in the door at Northwest Eugene Family Dental.

Let's get to know each other

Our relationship with you rests on mutual respect and genuine listening. Your first visit provides quality time to ask questions, express your concerns, and share anything you want us to know.

You can expect to leave our office with a greater understanding of your oral and overall health, and an established direction towards your dental goals.  Your initial visit includes:

  • Discussion of Your Goals and Concerns
  • Health History Review
  • Oral Cancer Screening
  • Gum Disease Screening/Charting
  • Cavity, Fracture, Wear and Missing Tooth Exam/Charting
  • Digital X-Ray Review
  • Professional Cleaning

This appointment is typically 1.5 to 2 hours long and will include a teeth cleaning, unless you have a dental emergency that needs immediate treatment.
