What should I expect for my first visit?
Unless you ask or desire to be seen for a consult or emergency exam with your dentist, we typically schedule you with one of our hygienists for a one-hour appointment. At this appointment, you will receive a full oral examination and any appropriate x-rays will be reviewed. A majority of the time, you are able to have your teeth cleaned as well.
In some cases, such as active periodontal (“gum”) disease or if there has been a long period since your teeth were last cleaned, your cleaning may have to be split into multiple appointments or rescheduled for a longer appointment. If you think one of these scenarios apply, please let us know so we can do our best to schedule accordingly.
