New Patient Experience

Your first appointment will consist of a Comprehensive Dental Exam and a Cleaning.

Comprehensive Dental Exam:

  • Review Medical History
  • Discuss your questions and concerns about your oral health
  • Radiographic and intraoral images
  • Soft tissue exam
  • Periodontal exam
  • Visual tooth exam

A thorough comprehensive dental exam is a cornerstone of preventive healthcare, offering numerous benefits to patients. Here's why understanding one's oral health through such an exam is crucial:

  1. Early Detection of Issues: A comprehensive dental exam allows for the early detection of dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other issues. Catching these problems early can prevent them from progressing into more serious and costly conditions.

  2. Prevention is Key: Understanding one's oral health status empowers individuals to take proactive steps to prevent dental issues. By identifying areas of concern, patients can work with their dentist to develop personalized preventive care plans, including proper oral hygiene routines and dietary changes.

  3. Customized Treatment Plans: Each person's oral health needs are unique. Through a comprehensive exam, dentists can assess individual risk factors and tailor treatment plans accordingly. This ensures that patients receive the most effective and appropriate care for their specific needs.

  4. Overall Health Connection: Oral health is closely linked to overall health. Research has shown associations between oral health and conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory problems. A comprehensive dental exam can uncover signs of systemic diseases, allowing for early intervention and improved overall health outcomes.

  5. Educational Opportunity: Comprehensive dental exams provide an excellent opportunity for patient education. Dentists can discuss the importance of oral hygiene practices, dietary choices, and lifestyle habits in maintaining optimal oral health. This education empowers patients to make informed decisions about their oral care and overall well-being.

  6. Peace of Mind: Knowing the current state of one's oral health can provide peace of mind. Regular exams and cleanings can alleviate anxiety about potential dental problems and help patients feel confident in their oral health status.
