Initial Examination

Our Assistants

Every new patient to the office will receive a comprehensive dental examination. This examination includes a complete evaluation of the teeth and gums as well as a thorough oral cancer screening. Our team will discuss any recommended radiographs with you at your first visit to our office.

During the initial examination, measurements of the gums will be taken in order to obtain a record of your periodontal health. This is a very important step as gum measurements are the most accurate way to diagnose periodontal disease. All findings are charted for future reference.
