Your First Visit
For those new to our dental practice it may seem unusual to schedule a two-hour visit with the doctor and hygienist. Many new patients often tell us that they have never experienced a more thorough and complete oral health examination. The doctor not only checks for decay and secondary decay around fillings and the tooth roots, but also examines soft tissue.
Detecting gum disease early is an important part of preventing bone loss and supporting tissues. The doctor will also perform an oral cancer exam, screening for pre-cancerous changes every time you visit. This exam involves your head, neck, glands and oral tissues.
Next, the doctor and hygienist assess your overall general health, since it can affect or be affected by your oral health. You will be impressed by the comprehensive exam on your first visit. A “cleaning” may take place at a follow-up visit depending on your oral condition.
We believe you deserve a personal visit with the dentist to put you on track for a lifetime of dental health. We look forward to seeing you on your first visit! Contact us today to speak with a member of our friendly office staff.
