What to expect at my 1st dental visit?

Hey every1! Even though this is very embarressing to admit- I've never been to the denist before. :redface:I am 22 years old and I finally have some dental insurance and would like to go get my teeth checked out and see what I can do to get them fixed. I'm just wondering what I should expect at my 1st dental visit. Any advice will help! Thank you all in advance! :grouphug:
They usually, take a look around your mouth, take x rays and just talk with you what needs doing in your mouth and its a good time for you to ask any questions you have. They wont do anything unusual on your first visit, and they may look at your gums too. It'll be fine. Good luck on your first visit!
