During Your Appointment
X-Rays and Diagnodent®
At your first appointment your dental hygienist will quickly take digital x-rays, then inspect your teeth for decay and cavities using a high-tech device called Diagnodent®. Diagnodent highlights decay before it can be seen by the naked eye, and even before x-rays show it. The process is easy and comfortable as well as helpful to our dental professionals in order to give you the best treatment possible.
Next, your hygienist will measure your gums to see what the best type of dental cleaning is the best fit for you. Then the hygienist will proceed with their cleaning of your teeth and gums.
After your cleaning, your dentist will sit with you to review your records, examine your mouth, and discuss any dental concerns you may have.
We do not double book appointment times, which means you get attention from both your hygienist and dentist on time as scheduled. It is our goal to provide you information about your dental health and treatment options without pressure.
Additional Dental Treatment
If you need additional dental treatment at your first appointment we able to accommodate your need in most cases. This enables us to fix dental problems before they get worse, and save you additional trips and stress from traffic.
If more extensive dental work is required, we’ll review your treatment and financial options with you and schedule your next appointment.
