New patient initial appointments usually involve any x-rays that may be necessary. We will also contact your previous dental office and collect as much information as possible if your consent is given and a release form is signed. A hygienist will then do perio charting and check the health of your gum tissues. With that information the hygienist will be able to tell you what type of dental cleaning is recommended and how long of an appointment will be needed for that cleaning. A comprehensive exam will also be completed and thoroughly explained (answering any questions that may arise). We do have short videos that help explain dental procedures as well. You will leave here with a cost estimate of any treatment that is recommended. If any further treatment is necessary, we can help you schedule an appointment at your convenience.
Our goal is for you to leave here understanding your treatment plan and its cost - and with a smile!
