On your first visit as a new patient (non-emergency in nature), you will receive a thorough examination of your teeth & gums with an oral cancer screening by the doctor. Current radiographs (x-rays) will be taken as they are an important part of this exam. X-rays allow the doctor to detect potential problems between and inside your teeth as well as the health of your gums and bone structure.
After the exam and consultation, we will discuss the results and recommend a plan for your preventive care (type of cleaning) withour hygienist and any required treatment. Adult cleanings are not normally done at the first consultation appointment, however, children are scheduled directly with the hygienist for their first visit.
We welcome your comments or suggestions. If you have any questions, please call. We are here to help you, your family & friends for years to come!
