What To Expect
Being well-prepared for your appointment will ensure that the doctor has all of the needed information to provide the best possible care for you. It also will help relieve any unnecessary anxiety you may be feeling. Also, take some time to review our staff page and familiarize yourself with the doctor. We look forward to your first visit.
During your first visit, your medical and dental history will be reviewed and then you will be given a thorough periodontal examination. During this examination we will measure probing depths and recession along with other areas of concern to determine how our office may be of help to you. Any additional x-rays will be taken, if needed, for an accurate diagnosis to be made. After the examination has been completed we will explain our findings and treatment recommendations. Our goal is to answer all questions that you may have before you leave the office that day in order to help you understand your condition and what you can expect from your treatment. If more time is needed, or further information required, a second visit may need to be scheduled.
