What to Expect
The First Appointment
If you are interested only in cosmetic dentistry, we offer a free cosmetic consultation to all new patients. During the consultation we will discuss your cosmetic options for creating the smile you have always wanted. Otherwise for general dental patients, at your first visit, all areas of your mouth will be thoroughly examined. This process will include a detailed examination of the teeth, soft tissue, supporting structure alignment, bite and more. A complete set of x-rays will be taken and models of your teeth will be made if necessary. We also perform an oral cancer screening and chart for periodontal disease. All of the information that we obtain will be carefully evaluated so that we may accurately assess your dental needs.
Dental Evaluation and Plan for Treatment
After your preventive appointment, we will explain your dental evaluation and plan for treatment. Immediate needs as well as long term objectives will be based on the goal of you receiving maximum life for your natural teeth. If you only need a routine cleaning, we may also do that in the first appointment.
