We always welcome new patients! We can help put you on the path to a brighter, healthier, and more appealing smile.
One of our doctors will meet with you to discuss your specific needs, concerns, and ultimate goals. During this initial consultation, we’ll review your medical and dental histories, and perform a thorough clinical assessment.
We’ll examine your teeth carefully, inspecting each surface, and the structural integrity of each tooth. The relationship of your teeth and bite will be measured. We’ll also evaluate your lips and the contours of your face. You will be examined for tooth decay, oral cancer, and gum (periodontal) disease. Some dental impressions (diagnostic models) and photographs may be taken during this initial appointment.
We’ll review our clinical findings with you and provide recommendations for treatment. In complex cases, a separate follow-up consultation appointment may be required. This allows us more time to analyze the results of your examination and to devise the best treatment approach.
You’ll spend about 90 minutes in our office during your initial appointment.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
If you require assistance in obtaining x-rays or records from another dental practice, please call us at 214.361.0883 prior to your first appointment. We’ll be happy to assist you in obtaining everything you’ll need.
In a private consultation, we’ll review our clinical findings and recommend the proper treatment for your care. It’s important to us that you have a clear understanding of what’s involved. We’ll go over your ideal treatment plan – including any possible options, explain the expected long-term results, and review the time and costs involved. When it comes to treatment, we believe the most conservative approach is usually the best approach – less is more. But we will always recommend the treatment or procedure that is right for you. No more; no less.
