Upon arrival at our office you will be greeted by our treatment coordinator, who will help you complete a detailed medical history and give you an overview of what to expect in the next hour to hour and a half in our office. During your appointment one of our doctors will discuss any concerns or goals that you may have regarding your dental health and smile. Our doctor along with one of our hygienists, will perform a clinical examination and evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. An oral cancer examination will be performed at this time. We use a new painless screening device called a Velscope which can potentially reveal many tissue abnormalities. Any necessary x-rays may be taken at this time. The doctor and the hygienist will then make treatment recommendations based on these findings and will discuss treatment options with you. A separate consultation appointment with one of the doctors and the treatment coordinator may be necessary if a more complicated treatment plan is required.
