Patient Experience

What to expect at your new patient appointment:

Adult:

  • Review of medical and dental history
  • Blood pressure screening
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Full mouth digital xrays
  • Gum examination to evaluate for disease
  • Comprehensive examination of your teeth and existing dental work to check for cavities, fractures, cracks, chips, stains and excessive wear

Based on your gum examination, we will determine the most appropriate type of cleaning for you.

We will give you a personalized treatment plan and recommend the best way to begin treatment to help you improve your overall health and achieve the smile you desire.

Children (age 17 and under):

  • Review of medical and dental history
  • Necessary digital xrays
  • Examination of teeth and gums
  • Evaluation of growth and development of the teeth and jaws
  • Dental cleaning/polishing and fluoride treatment

For very young children:

  • For very young children who have never had a visit to the dentist, we schedule a "happy visit"
  • This visit introduces the young patient to the sites and sounds of a dental office such as the dental chair and light, the dental mouth mirror, the tooth counter or feeler and "Mr. Thirsty"
  • We will provide education on how to care for your child's teeth and discuss your concerns
