Dental Exams

New Patient Exams

On your first visit to our office, we'll conduct a new patient exam. During the exam, we'll perform a few routine procedures to get to know you and evaluate your oral health.

Steps to your First Visit:​​

  • Review of your Medical History

  • Full series of digital X-rays

  • Oral cancer screening

  • Clinical evaluation 

  • Periodontal assessment

  • Discussion of Treatment Options

Periodic Exams

Once you're an established patient with us, we will conduct periodic exams twice every year. This helps us keep track of your oral health and allows us to identify new needs that you may develop.

At these visits, we will​

  • Update your Medical History

  • Take new digital X-rays (only once per year)

  • Conduct new oral cancer screening

  • Perform new clinical evaluation

  • Take new periodontal assessment 

  • Discuss modifications to Treatment plan

If you have had a full series of X-rays (FMX) taken at another office within the last year, we are happy to accept them. Just ask our front desk about the best way to have those records sent to us.

Oral Cancer Screenings

We perform oral cancer screenings twice per year during your routine periodic exam. This helps us evaluate any changes in your mouth and identify disease early. Early detection is valuable when dealing with any disease and most especially cancer. During the screening, we examine all the tissues in your mouth as well as your lips and lymph nodes to note any variation. However, it is important to know that many times changes to the tissues in your mouth are not an indication of cancer, and not all oral cancers are easily detectable in a screening.
