Welcome to Our Practice

Dentist Winston-Salem, NC - Patrick M. Michel, DMD 

Welcome to our website and our practice!  We look forward to helping you and your family care for your dental health.  We are a family dental practice in Winston-Salem, NC conveniently located on Healy Drive.

Our website is being designed to be a valuable tool for you, our current or prospective patient, to use to help contact us or to answer a question you may have about your dental treatment or our practice.  With this new website, we now have a great online patient library that can help explain dental treatment and answer some questions you may have.  Check out the lower left part of the screen when you click on the link.

What We Do

We offer a variety of dental services including cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implant restorations, dentures, extractions, whitening options for your teeth, children's dental services, and more.

Your First Visit

If you are coming from another dental practice and have current information there (x-rays or treatment records, typically), download this form, sign it, and forward it to your previous office.  This could save you some time and allow us to get a more accurate picture of your dental condition and dental history.  We may not have to take x-rays on the day of your first appointment if you have current x-rays in hand.

When you come in, we’ll ask you to fill out a patient questionnaire and medical history. To save you some time, feel free to print the New Patient forms from here, fill them out, and bring them with you.  These forms are important—they help determine the course of your treatment. We have to know about allergies, sensitivity to anesthetics, long-term medications—your whole health picture!  

By the way, your privacy is important to us as well.  If you are interested in learning about our privacy practices, please click here.

Then we’ll examine your teeth, gums, and soft tissues. We’ll take digital x-rays to look for areas of decay and possible infection that require treatment. Finally, the hygienist will perform the recommended dental cleaning.

At the conclusion of this visit, we will discuss what we found during the course of the appointment and schedule appropriately.
