First Visit

What Will Happen On My First Visit?

Your initial visit is an important first step in letting us provide the best in oral health care. We take time to get know you as a person and identify your unique dental needs. A comprehensive periodontal examination, an oral cancer screening and a detailed review of your medical and dental history are completed. A verbal dialogue is conducted to find out about your past dental experiences and to determine treatment expectations. Diagnostic x-rays are taken and a clinical examination is performed.

After obtaining and reviewing this information we will discuss our findings and make recommendations for your treatment along with options and fees. We feel strongly that therapy should begin only when you are comfortable with the diagnosis, treatment plan and investment you will be making.

It is our philosophy that optimal outcome of treatment is best achieved when there is a mutual understanding and rapport between the patient and the doctor. We look forward to building a successful relationship.

Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension).

We will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.
