When you first call for yourself, a friend, or your child, our receptionist will schedule an initial appointment. We also see patients on a walk-in basis. However, patients with appointments have priority over walk-in patients.

During your initial visit, the dentist will conduct a thorough examination in order to determine the general health of your teeth and gums. We will discuss specific treatment recommendations before proceeding.

First time consultation may include the following when necessary:

  1. Full mouth charting
  2. Measurement of Periodontal pocketing
  3. Mobility charting
  4. Furcation charting
  5. X-rays when needed to check for decay and bone loss
  6. Vitality tests
  7. Plaque disclosing solution to show “old” plaque, “new” plaque and “caries producing plaque”.
  8. Study models are sometimes required so that the dentist can better treatment plan.

The dentist, after careful deliberation, will develop a treatment plan and also different options available given the patient’s dental status, medical history and social history.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?

You should have your teeth checked and cleaned at least twice a year, though your dentist or dental hygienist may recommend more frequent visits.

Regular dental exams and cleaning visits are essential in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. At these visits, your teeth are cleaned and checked for cavities. Additionally, there are many other things that are checked and monitored to help detect, prevent, and maintain your dental health.

 There are so many toothpastes to choose from; how do I know which one to use?

First, when purchasing a toothpaste for you or your child, select one that contains fluoride. Fluoride-containing toothpastes have been shown to prevent cavities. However, one word of caution:Use only a very small amount for children under age 6 (the size of their fingernail). This is because young children swallow toothpaste, and swallowing too much fluoride can lead to tooth discoloration in permanent teeth.

What are dental sealants, who should get them, and how long do they last?

Sealants are a thin, plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth — usually the back teeth (the premolars, and molars) — to prevent tooth decay. The painted on liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and groves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.

Typically, children should get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in.
