When you meet your dentist feel free to discuss any concerns you might have.
The comprehensive clinical examination we do will include an evaluation of your teeth, gums, jaw joints (TMJ) and the soft tissues. We will determine what x-rays are appropriate as well as photographs and study models of your teeth to provide the information that is needed to best determine your plan of treatment. We also ensure cosmetic evaluations where appropriate or upon request. This thorough examination is essential to provide exceptional, quality dentistry to our patients.
Your dentist will use all of the diagnostic information to create a treatment plan to help you keep your teeth longer, in greater comfort,with good function and appearance. We will then outline a dental plan to best treat your individual needs. Use of sedation techniques will be offered if you are at all nervous. Please inform us if you ever have any questions regarding your treatment plan. The treatment plan and an estimate of costs is printed out for your convenience and records. Tooth pain or pressing dental problems will often be addressed at your first visit. The important thing is to get to know each other , assess what is going on with your mouth and make a simple rational plan to fix any problems.
The surgeries are equipped with sky television and an in house stereo system to make your short stay with us as pleasant as possible.
