On your first visit as a New Patient (non-emergency in nature), you will receive a thorough examination of your teeth & gums with an oral cancer screening by the doctor. Current radiographs (x-rays) will be taken as they are an important part of this exam. X-rays allow the doctor to detect potential problems between and inside your teeth as well as the health of your gums and bone structure.
After the exam and consultation, we will discuss the results and recommend a plan for your preventive care (type of cleaning) with our hygienist and any required treatment. Adult cleanings are not normally done at the first consultation appointment, however, children are scheduled directly with the hygienist for their first visit.
Thank you for selecting us to provide you and your family with quality dental care. Making your visits to our office comfortable and rewarding is our goal. Please call us at (770) 893-2340 if you have any questions or would like to schedule and appointment. We also welcome your comments and suggestions.
Once a diagnoisis is made by the doctor, financial estimates will be given to you before treatment is started. Our Treatment Coordinator will be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning fees, dental procedures and appointments.
