We Welcome New Patients!
Your first visit with us will take approximately 90 minutes. Before the initial exam, the doctor will ask you about your medical history. On your medical history form, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. It is important to note any allergies, hospitalizations or surgeries, or illnesses. Also tell the doctor the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. This information will help the doctor to select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
The doctor will then perform a thorough exam which includes checking the muscles of your neck and face, your gums, teeth, TMJ, and an oral cancer screening. Next a set of x-rays will be taken that will allow the doctor to view any tooth decay, the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and any abnormalities. Finally we take a series of photographs of your teeth which aids the doctor in developing the best possible treatment plan for your needs.
