Arrival:
When you arrive on your first visit, please be prepared to complete basic personal, health, and insurance information forms. You may also bring the following information to help us evaluate your dental history:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past three years
  • Insured patients, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination takes almost about an hour includes a comprehensive examination, proper diagnosis, charting, periodontal probing, and treatment recommendations. We will also take basic x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bitewing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Treatment Planning & Consultation:
After the comprehensive exam and oral evaluations are done in most cases we clean your teeth or taking care of the problem(s) that you’re in today. In such cases we recommend a proper dental treatment with options for long-lasting oral health. Our office manager will then join to sit down with you and answer any and all questions should you have regarding the proposed treatment. She also work with you in terms of how insurance works, or what sort of easy payment options we can use to help you today.
