Your First Appointment

Your first appointment will consist of a thorough examination and consultation, including a soft tissue exam where we look for any abnormalities that may be of concern. We will also perform a ViziLite® oral cancer screening to check for any potentially dangerous oral lesions. Your examination may also include a series of digital x-rays and an exam with an intraoral camera to check for any problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. A clear explanation of our findings will be given to you and we will discuss all of the treatment alternatives with you. Once a treatment plan has been established, we will set up a series of appointments to treat your specific problems. Financial arrangements will be discussed at your first visit, or during a subsequent consultation.
