Your Health History

Before the dental exam is performed, please talk to our dentist about your health history. This will give our dentist insight on your oral health and the underlying causes of any present dental problems.

Dental Exam

On the first visit, our dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. During this comprehensive exam, our dentist will check your mouth and teeth for any chronic or potential issues. Our dentist will check for any periodontal diseases, tooth decay, gingivitis, etc. X-rays may be conducted as well. After the comprehensive exam, our dentist will formulate a custom-made treatment plan for you.

Teeth Cleaning

During your teeth cleaning, our dentist will remove accumulated plaque from your teeth. After a thorough cleaning has been done, our dentist will polish your teeth.

X-rays

X-rays are take so our dentist can examine your teeth, jawbone and overall bone health.

Brushing and Flossing

Brushing and flossing before the appointment will help our dentist properly examine your teeth.

Full Disclosure

It’s important that our new patients understand there is nothing about your oral health to hide from our dentist. Our dentist can improve your oral health, and hiding important information (such as smoking or not brushing teeth regularly) can have an impact on the treatment and services that our dentist recommends. It’s crucial that you disclose your complete and accurate medical and dental history on your first visit.
