Patient Services - First Visit

First Visit

Your first visit is an important time to get to know us and to understand how, together, we can enhance and maintain your overall dental health. During this time, we will examine your entire mouth, take any necessary radiographs (X-rays) and work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help ensure your beautiful smile for a lifetime.

We will introduce you to our intraoral camera so that you can see exactly what your doctor sees. You will also receive digital radiographs (X-rays) that produce the highest quality images with the least exposure possible. You may also bring or email bitewing X-rays taken less than a year ago and large panoramic X-rays taken less than three years ago.

We will present all of our findings to you regarding your oral health and will make recommendations for any treatment. It is important to share any questions or concerns you may have before we move forward with your personalized treatment. After your initial comprehensive examination, you will receive a professional cleaning by one of our hygienists.
