Your new patient dental examination
At your first visit, we will sit down with you to take down a complete medical and dental history. The doctor will then come in and chat with you prior to beginning his thorough dental examination. This includes taking some necessary films, charting past dental treatment, current dental needs, doing a periodontal examination, and performing a cancer check. Your second visit will likely consist of a cleaning and polishing appointment. When you return in 6 or 9 months for your regular continuing care visit, you will have a routine dental examination and cleaning combined in one appointment.
If you have a specific dental concern and feel this needs to be taken care of prior to your initial New Patient Dental Examination, we will still sit down with you and complete a medical and dental history. Following that, you will be scheduled with a doctor for treatment of your dental urgency/emergency. Once your concern has been dealt with, we would schedule your New Patient Dental Examination.
