Your first appointment is a comprehensive exam, consisting of an evaluation of your head, neck and mouth (teeth, gums oral cancer screening and hard tissue). Based on this evaluation, x-rays may need to be taken. Your dentist will review the findings of your exam and x-rays and discuss how your dental needs can be met. Note: If you are experiencing dental pain at the time of your exam/appointment you will be seen as an emergency patient so that your immediate dental need can be met. You will then be scheduled for another appointment for a complete exam.
