First Visit

Welcome to Meridian Campus Family Dental, your home for comfortable, compassionate dental care in Lacey. Our friendly dental team is excited to meet you and your family, and we want your first visit as a new patient to our office to be a wonderful experience. Since it will be your first time at our office, we will need to gather some health, financial and personal information from you to get started. You can save time by using the new patient forms found on our website to give us some of the information we will need.

During your first visit, our office staff will discuss any insurance or financial information with you before your appointment. In most cases, we can submit your insurance claims for you, making it easy to take advantage of any dental benefits you have. We will also answer any questions you have about financing and payment options for your dental services.

During Your Appointment

Once we get you checked in, you will start your first visit with us by seeing one of our talented hygienists. We use digital x-rays to create images of your teeth and help detect any issues, as well as laser assisted cavity detection. Our dental hygienist will painlessly scan for any signs of decay and periodontal issues before beginning your professional teeth cleaning.

After your cleaning, you will meet with Dr. Carpenter for a thorough dental exam. He will view your x-rays and laser results as well as perform a visible examination of your teeth. After the exam, he will discuss any problem areas that were detected and any treatments that may be needed. In some cases, he may suggest fixing any small issues the same day to save you a trip back to our office.

We want your first visit to be as comfortable and easy as possible. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help make your experience more enjoyable. Contact our office today to schedule your first visit with Meridian Campus Family Dental.

What a great dentist experience! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff is welcoming and kind. The dentist is very personable! Happy I found this gem.


Awesome new dentist. If you live in the Meridian Campus area you have to get your dental care here. If you live elsewhere you should consider driving here for your dental care. Either way, you will not be disappointed. Dr Carpenter and Mrs Carpenter have a first class dental practice. Everything is shiny new and no patient need is overlooked. I am so happy I found this dentist and look forward to getting my care here for many years to come!


Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I was a nervous patient but felt so comfortable with the staff, they listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease and comfortable. The office is beautifully decorated! I look forward to my next visit. I definitely recommend Meridian Campus Family Dental to my friends and family!


The staff was very attentive, friendly, welcoming, and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Loved having the option for an early 7am appointment so that it wouldn't conflict with my work schedule.
