Your First Visit
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Your first visit as a new patient is a time dedicated especially to you. Therefore, during your 60 minute complete dental check-up, you and Dr. Alex will have one on one time to discuss your goals and concerns. We will also gather necessary records like digital photographs and x-rays, and perform a comprehensive oral health evaluation, which includes oral cancer screening and TMJ function testing. Together, you and Dr. Alex will discuss your treatment options, how to prevent any future dental problems and formulate a plan so we can help you achieve your oral health goals.
"THE BEST DENTAL CHECK UP YOU'LL EVER HAVE"

YOUR DENTAL RECORDS
Photos, digital x-rays and scan
Pictures are worth a thousand words. When you and Dr. Alex can evaluate your photos together, it allows for better communication and understanding of the goals for your oral health. Therefore, a full set of 8 pictures are a standard part of your dental records.
We are proud to be a fully digital dental practice. That means instant visibility of the X-rays we take, and more importantly, far less radiation exposure to you. We will tailor our radiographic records based on your individual needs and risks for dental disease.
Sometimes, part of your records can include a digital scan. This is a 3D model of your teeth and gums that allows us to track changes in your teeth and gums over time in amazing detail. With this technology, we can also instantly see what your smile would look like after Invisalign!
NOW ITS TIME FOR YOUR CLEANING
There's no feeling like the feeling you have right after a dental hygiene visit. With a dental hygienist like our superstar hygienist (we call her a "hygenius"), Brittany, you will walk out feeling like your smile could light up a room. Through regular cleanings, we can establish healthier gums which lead to happier and happier visits!
A BETTER TOOTHBRUSH - A BETTER CHECK-UP!
During your cleaning, we will discuss using an electric toothbrush and what an amazing difference it can make in having better check-ups. Electric toothbrushes make it easy to more thoroughly the nooks and crooks in between teeth and along the gum line.
