New Patient Information
What do you do at the initial appointment?
At your initial dental appointment we will review your medical and dental history and discuss any concerns you may have. We are here to listen to you, so that we may provide safe and effective dental care for you. Your initial appointment will also consist of a very thorough and comprehensive examination. We perform an oral cancer examination, a complete periodontal examination evaluating the teeth and the soft tissues that support them, a thorough examination of the teeth to check for dental decay (cavities), as well as an assessment of the condition of existing fillings, crowns, bridgework and partial dentures. Your dental bite will be assessed to ensure you have efficient chewing. Children will be checked to ensure that all teeth are developing correctly, and if any future orthodontic treatment is likely to be required.
