At your first visit we will discuss your medical and dental history. We will take the time to understand any dental concerns that you may have about your teeth, gums or smile. We will discuss if there are any things that you would like to improve. The dentist will carefully conduct a comprehensive dental examination, which may include digital x-rays, a periodontal (gum) examination and a meticulous tooth-by-tooth check to identify cavities, examining prior dental treatment and restorations. Photos are taken and we sit with you to show and discuss.
