Your First Visit

To start, your dentist will review your dental and medical history, then perform a comprehensive dental exam. This exam will include a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite, as well as an oral cancer screening and any x-rays that may be required.
Based on your examination and history, a long-term dental treatment plan will be created for you. Your dentist will also dedicate time to answering any questions you may have about your dental health and treatment options.
