Before you can have a beautiful healthy smile, you need to make your first appointment. We understand that sometimes you need more information before choosing a new dental home for your family.

Front Desk

Your medical and medication history can make a big difference to your oral health and how we deliver your treatments. That’s why we take the time to find out everything about you – because we truly do want the best for your family. Download our convenient forms to speed this process along, or you can fill them out when you arrive. It’s up to you!



Meet our doctors and discuss your personal oral health needs and desires. After a thorough examination, Dr. Sokolovskiy and Dr. Vega will find the personal approach that will work best for you. We’ll set up a regular care schedule, design a treatment plan, and if you’re interested, discuss your cosmetic options. We will work with you to help you meet your goals.



At Batavia Family Dental, we want you to see what we see so you can feel comfortable with the decisions you are making for your family’s care. We use a small non-invasive intraoral camera to show you in detail any concerns or issues that we see so you can make treatment decisions with confidence. We’re also dedicated to your safety and use digital x-rays which we set to emit the lowest amount of radiation. Using this technology lets us create a baseline for changes. Plus, digital diagnostics use up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.


Hygiene Care

At your first appointment, we take the time to get to know you and everything about your teeth, so we get a clear picture of your oral health needs and concerns. Because of this, we will spend a little extra time than we do with your maintenance hygiene appointments. We’ll also create a mouth-map that we’ll use to track changes over time. We’ll assess for any jaw joint issues and do a screening for oral cancer. Please take advantage of this appointment by asking any questions you have about home care. Your hygienist is an expert at patient education and will happily give you all the help you need to take the best care of your smile.
