What To Expect
Your first appointment will start with an initial oral examination that includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, oral cancer exam, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We may also take x-rays, which can include a full mouth series, check-up bitewings or a panoramic x-ray depending on specific need. We use these x-rays for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Educate yourself on your symptoms by reviewing the content on this Web site. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctors. We look forward to your first visit.
