What can I expect at my first dental appointment?
We will get to know each other and decide if it's a good mutual fit. We provide time for you to share any changes or concerns you have about your oral health and to discuss any questions you may have.
We believe that knowledge is power and it is our goal to give you accurate information about your oral health so that you can make a decision that works for you about how to proceed with future preventive care, restorative care, and tooth replacement, if necessary.
At your initial exam, you will receive a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and gums. We will perform a periodontal evaluation so that we can give you the type of dental cleaning that will best support your health. We will also take diagnostic digital x-rays in order to identify any areas of decay or infection. We take a full medical history at your appointment so that we know about any other health challenges you may be having that can affect your oral health.
We will provide a personalized dental cleaning based on your needs and talk to you about a re-care schedule that makes sense for you so that you can maintain a healthy, comfortable smile!
