At Your First Visit

Thank you for choosing our practice we want to welcome you to our dental family. Your first visit with us will last about an hour.During this initial visit with us, our goal is to get to know you better and familiarize ourselves with your past dental.

Adult Visit

  • As an adult we will clean your teeth and take x-rays of them. Our dentist will then perform a thorough exam and evaluate the diagnostic records which will help in diagnosing tooth decay, periodontal problems, and jaw problems. After the examination is over, our dentist will provide a detailed summary that outlines any existing dental problems and proposed treatment. Take-home oral hygiene instructions will also be provided, along with any other suggestions to help you better care for your teeth.

Visit For A Child

  • Most initial office visits are to help acquaint the child with our dentist. The first dental visit is recommended at 6 to 12 months of age, or after several baby teeth have erupted. The first visit usually lasts 30 to 45 minutes and may include the following, depending on the age: a thorough examination of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to monitor growth and development, and, if needed, a gentle cleaning, which includes polishing teeth and removing any plaque, tartar and stains. Our dentist may demonstrate proper home cleaning, including flossing, and assess the need for fluoride. Because baby teeth fall out, X-rays aren’t usually recommended for diagnosing decay. X-rays are used to see if the root of a jammed baby tooth may be affecting an adult tooth. In general, it is best not to use X-rays in young children unless absolutely necessary.
