The first appointment will consist of taking images for cavity detection, a screening for oral cancer, charting of your existing teeth and the dental work that you already have.  You will also have your teeth cleaned by our dental hygienist.  The Doctor will then answer any questions that you have.  This process will take approximately an hour to an hour and a half.

The American Dental Association (ADA) (ada.org) guidelines recommend visiting a dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and professional cleaning. Our office also recommends a minimum of two visits per year.

One of our staff members will compile your medical and dental history during your first visit. We will then examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, make images (Digital X-rays) of your teeth as needed. After we review your dental profile, we will discuss any treatment needed.  We will discuss your options for treatment and help you determine the best plan to fit your needs.  During regular follow-up visits, we will examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, clean your teeth and make plans for treatment, as needed. We will discuss any pain or problems you may be experiencing and answer any questions you may have.

Please call our office as soon as you determine that you have a dental emergency. We will be glad to work you in to our schedule if you have a dental emergency during regular business hours. After hours, over the weekend and during holidays, please call our office for the doctor’s emergency contact number.
