What to Expect at Your First Visit


Comprehensive Exam

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. The doctor will perform a thorough exam, which includes:

  • Charting teeth and existing restorations
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) exam to check for joint health and diagnose any joint dysfunction
  • Full periodontal charting
  • Oral cancer screening with the latest diagnostic technology
  • Diagnostic exam to chart any conditions, such as decay, impacted teeth and gum recession.  

X-Rays (if needed)

If we do not have recent radiographs on file (full mouth x-rays within the past 5 years, bitewings on the back teeth within the past 1 year), we will allow for additional time to take any necessary films. This allows your doctor to examine your mouth for teeth decay, periodontal problems, jaw problems and any signs of oral cancer that may not be visible to the naked eye. These diagnostic records will help your doctor provide an evaluation outlining any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. 

Dental Cleaning 

If you are due for a hygiene appointment, we may schedule you for a cleaning immediately after your comprehensive exam. Our fantastic hygienists will provide you with a thorough yet gentle cleaning. Please allow for an additional hour if you are scheduling a cleaning after your exam appointment.

Open Communication

We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have

Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!

We look forward to seeing you at your appointment!
