We suggest that every new patient begin by having a comprehensive exam with all necessary x-rays.  This appointment generally takes a little over an hour and usually does not include a cleaning.  At this visit the doctor will perform the following:

  • Review past medical history, health and systems review, medication and allergy background
  • Review dental history, oral habits, oral hygiene, and the recording of a chief complaint or concern
  • Complete dental charting of existing restorations, visible decay, gingival (gum) examination, and recording of all other findings
  • Extraoral head and neck examination
  • Intraoral tissue evaluation and cancer screening
  • TMJ evaluation
  • Visual inspection of occlusion (bite) stability, mobility, wear patterns, and nerve damage
  • Discuss findings, treatment options, and any other patient concerns
