What can I expect my first visit?
As a new patient, you will have a full diagnostic exam to document any existing dental work, missing teeth and see if you need any additional dental work. This also includes a periodontal evaluation. Radiographs (x-rays) will be taken and you will have your teeth cleaned. If you have periodontal disease, your cleaning may be done in more than one appointment. We also are proud to offer oral cancer screenings. Some insurances cover this service. If yours does not, please do not be discouraged as we offer this service for a low cash fee.
Why do I need to have x-rays?
X-rays are necessary for diagnosing decay or abnormalities that cannot be seen visually.
How long will my first appointment be?
Usually about 60 minutes. We will review your medical history and look at all previous dental work you’ve had and diagnose needed treatment.
How often should I get my teeth cleaned and have an exam?
We recommend that you receive a cleaning every six months. Patients with periodontal disease are advised to receive cleanings every three months.
What is periodontal disease?
Destruction of the bone and ligaments that hold the teeth in place. It is caused by plaque and calculus that build up along and under the gum line.
At what age should a child first see a dentist?
The ADA recommends that a child be seen by a dentist as soon as his/her 1st tooth erupts, no later than the 1st birthday. We will check for tooth decay and other problems. We will also review proper oral hygiene practices with you and address any concerns you may have. These appointments are educational to you as a parent and helps to get your child familiar with going to the dentist.
Do you take emergencies?
