During Your Appointment
At your initial appointment, your hygienist will take digital x-rays and check your teeth for decay or gum disease or cavities. The process is painless, and it helps us to keep our treatments conservative.
We also measure your gums to determine what type of cleaning is right for you. After your cleaning, our dentists will sit down with you and examine your mouth, then discuss any concerns you may have.
We do not double book appointment times, so we always have adequate time to discuss your treatment, and make sure you feel fully informed about your dental health and treatment options without being rushed or feeling uninformed.
When Additional Dental Treatment is Needed
If you need additional dental treatment outside of the check-up and cleaning, we would like to get the process started as soon as possible. If we can’t do same-day treatment, we will try to book you in either the same week or at your next earliest convenience. If you are concerned about the cost, we have numerous financial options to make sure you can afford the care you need.
