Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During your first visit, we make sure to obtain important information from you, including a medical and dental history. We will learn from you what your expectations are from us and we can share with you some of our philosophy and expectations, as well. A thorough examination will occur, including a visual exam, periodontal or gum tissue charting, updating of appropriate x-rays, study models and photos, if necessary. Because we value having well-informed patients, we offer complimentary consultation with the doctor when needed.
