She is the proud mom of two beautiful children and has been honored as "Lowcountry Mom of the Month.” It’s not uncommon to see her cheering on the sidelines of her kids’ sporting events!

Your First Visit

What Patients Can Expect

At your first appointment, we’ll build in extra time so we can get to know you and so you can familiarize yourself with our practice. We are a paperless office, with all patient forms available online. Our front desk team can help support with insurance coverage or paying your bill. We will give you a tour of our office before you’re brought back for an evaluation of your dental needs.  

We take thorough records including photos, radiographs, and a digital dental health scan.  This dental health scan helps track changes in your gums and teeth over time with our iTero scanner!

Dr. Paulisick will then perform a thorough exam and can discuss your oral health and additional treatments as needed. From there, we can set up future appointments so you can maintain a healthy, happy smile. We welcome your feedback and any questions you have throughout your appointment. The Longboard Dental team is always thrilled to get to know new patients!
