Are you experiencing any symptoms prior to your appointment? Review the content under patient education and services.
If you are new patient scheduled for a hygiene appointment, our hygienist will call you back to privately discuss your medical history prior to cleaning your teeth. If you have any medical conditions or concerns this is the time to bring them up. Our staff is here to help. They may also be required to collect further information about your dental history by taking x-rays. At some point during your exam, one of our highly qualified doctors will come in to perform a dental exam. They will also review your x-rays. This is another time to bring up any questions that you may have about your dental care or health.
