What to Expect on Your First Visit
We want every dental visit to be a great experience, starting with your first one. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment and plan to spend between 60 - 90 minutes in our office. You will receive a comprehensive oral examination and x-rays to help your dentist assess your oral health. Your dentist will look for signs of:
- tooth decay
- bone loss
- oral cancer
- periodontal (gum) disease
Oral Cancer Screening
An advanced oral cancer screening exam is an important part of the comprehensive oral evaluation. We use Identafi, a non-invasive technology that improves your dentist’s ability to identify, evaluate and monitor abnormal areas not visible in a conventional exam. There is an extra charge for this screening which is covered by some insurance companies.
Your Treatment Plan
Your dentist will customize a personal treatment plan for you based on the clinical findings of your initial examination. It will specify the type of cleaning and additional visits you need and include recommendations for home care products. Your dental team will review your treatment plan options and begin treatment after obtaining your consent.
What to Bring
To save time, please bring with you:
- dental insurance card, if applicable
