Choosing a New Dentist
Oral health is very important for many people, and finding a dentist who perfectly suits their needs is a main concern. Normally, patients are inclined to choose a dentist and remain with the practice for a long time. However, under special circumstances, such as moving to a new neighborhood, people must find new doctors.

Your first step is to call our office and set up an appointment. Consultations are a great opportunity for you to meet our dentist and get to know him or her better. Our dentist can talk to you about the different procedures that are offered and how you can benefit from them.
Paperwork and Documentation
Before the appointment, you will be required to fill out a new patient form along with providing your dental history and records. It is suggested that you come in at least 20 minutes before your scheduled appointment to make sure that you have plenty of time to fill out these forms.Our office also provides patients with the choice of filling out the forms before coming to the clinic. This saves you time and ensures you a hassle-free appointment and an efficient visit. Patients can download health history forms from our website and fill in all the required details. This information will be stored in our database and be evaluated prior to your appointment.

After studying your dental health history, our dentist will examine your gums, teeth and mouth. This procedure is known as a comprehensive exam and is performed to study the state of your dental health and hygiene. An important part of the comprehensive exam is the cleaning. The teeth and mouth are thoroughly cleaned before moving onto the X-rays.
After conducting the comprehensive exam, our dentist will take an X-ray of your mouth, which will give a clear picture of the condition of your teeth and jaw. These scans are taken to better analyze oral disruptions, diseases and cavities.
Post Examination Discussion
After the dental checkup, our dentist will discuss your results with you. Our dentist will guide you through any of the irregularities or decay that were found in your mouth. He or she will also discuss the various treatment options that are offered at our clinic.
It is highly recommended that patients see the dentist twice a year to check for any cavities, tooth decay or oral health problems. During these routine check-ups, the teeth are cleaned and treated to make sure they stay in good shape.
