We’ll begin your first visit by getting to know you, your past dental history, and any concerns you may have. After a comprehensive evaluation we will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your dental needs.
If you have no urgent concerns, we will complete your dental cleaning. We try our best to accommodate same day dental treatment as our schedule allows.
Expect your first visit to last approximately 90 minutes. Our practice administrators will be more than happy to review your financial investment and look into your individual insurance coverage as needed.
At Kievit Dentistry, we use paperless forms that can either be completed at the beginning of your appointment on an office iPad or emailed directly to you to be completed prior to your appointment. This reduces paper waste, streamlines your check in process, and saves you time from filling out redundant paperwork.
Once you have scheduled your first appointment, we can email you the appropriate paperwork, or click the button below.
Our practice administrators are available to answer any questions you may have regarding your financial investment to achieve optimal oral health. For those patients without dental insurance, we offer a membership plan to help offset the cost of treatment.
Dr. Alyssa McIntyre Kievit first committed to the dentistry career path when she was in high school. “I don’t come from a line of dentists so I relied heavily on the dental community to foster my interest and gain insight on how to achieve this goal. I made cold calls to local offices, explaining my interest, and asked if I could work as a volunteer intern. A local orthodontist hired me as an assistant and trained me on the job. I attribute this experience to what really opened the doors for me to begin my career path.”
As a native to Newtown, Connecticut, Dr. Kievit is happy to be practicing in her home state. Dr. Kievit attended Syracuse University where she graduated magna cum laude with an honors distinction in Biology. She earned her doctorate from the University of Connecticut, School of Dental Medicine.
To further her skills, she completed a general dentistry residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, splitting her time between the Upper East Side hospital campus and Harlem satellite dental clinic. “It was here I really learned the importance of breaking down barriers to achieving dental health. Many of my patients did not have access to routine care and came to our clinic embarrassed and feeling quite hopeless. Dentistry is so much more than treating disease. We treat the whole person and I love that my job allows me to improve health and overall happiness.”
When not in the office, Dr. Kievit can be found volunteering with her five year old golden retriever, Lucy. “We named her Lucy because we love Lucille Ball and have spent so many evenings laughing together with her onscreen antics. Lucy has lived up to her name, she is goofy and full of personality.” In December 2017, Lucy was awarded registration with Intermountain Therapy Animals. “Lucy brings so much joy to our lives that we wanted to share that with others. We ultimately would like to work with R.E.A.D, a program designed to promote children’s literacy and communication by reading to dogs.”
