Your First Visit

First VisitUpon arrival you will be asked to complete a patient history form, which will include pertinent information concerning your health, both medically and dentally. You can download these forms here.

In order to make an efficient analysis of your dental needs, a clinical examination and appropriate x-rays will be taken. Patients are encouraged to bring previous records from their existing dentist. This will help give your new dentist a timeline regarding your previous treatment and what dental services you received. Also your existing x-rays may be useful and new x-rays may not need to be taken. Full body shielding aprons and neck collars are always used.

Digital radiographic images use up to 80% less radiation then conventional x-ray film, and the images appear instantaneously on the computer screen. The radiographic images produce a better image than traditional x-rays and can be enlarged and enhanced for a more precise examination.

The clinical exam will include examination of your head and neck, facial and oral soft tissues, oral cancer screening, dental examination and periodontal examination, and functional assessment. We may also obtain dental impressions and bite registrations to analyze and determine if there is a malocclusion (misalignment of your bite) present.

This information, in conjunction with the radiographs, will help us determine your current dental health.

From the clinical records we assembled at your first visit, a diagnosis of your dental needs will be determined and treatment options will be developed. These treatment recommendations and all options available will be explained at your second visit. We will also provide you with cost estimates for these treatment options.
