Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, and high-quality dental care. We understand that you or your child may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while we provide the best possible care.
Your first visit is all about you: your comfort, your happiness, and your health
Your first New Patient Exam will take about 1.5 to 2 hours. It is a detailed exam of your medical history, including medications that may affect your mouth; a TMJ exam, perio evaluation, oral cancer screening, bite and smile analysis, airway evaluation, oral hygiene instructions, X-rays, intraoral photos, a review of treatment options, and an individualized plan if indicated, along with a cleaning.
Subsequent regular exams will take about 60 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, during which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth’s surface.
