FIRST ADULT VISIT
Your first appointment is your opportunity to become familiar with our office, our staff and our dentists. We'd like you to meet your doctor and tell us about your concerns and goals for your dental care, so that we may discuss all of your options.
Your first visit is scheduled with your dentist, not with a dental hygienist. During your first visit, we listen to your needs and questions. We review your medical and dental history and perform a thorough dental examination, including intra-oral and extra-oral soft tissue, oral cancer screening, periodontal exam, digital x-rays and diagnostic casts (models) as needed.
Usually, your appointment for a regular dental cleaning (also known as the prophylaxis) can then be scheduled. If other, more urgent needs are identified, we will tailor a treatment plan to address each of these needs.
