What should I expect on my first visit?
The first visit begins with a comprehensive examination which includes cavity detection x-rays, an oral cancer screening, periodontal examination and examination for areas of decay or infection.
How long does a typical exam, x-rays, and cleaning take?
We reserve an hour for your initial visit.
Do you treat children? How young?
We typically will schedule children at 3 years of age for a Happy Visit. Depending on the child, this will consist of an introduction to the dental office and the things that happen during a visit, a ride in the chair and visual examination of the teeth. In some cases, we will clean the teeth and apply a fluoride treatment. The idea of the visit is a pleasant, enjoyable, fun introduction to the dental office. We will also review home care and provide nutritional counseling in regards to dental health. We will be happy to see younger children if there is a concern of infection, decay or an accident occurred.
