Initial Oral Examination
During a routine visit, our team will take the time to get know you, educate you on proper dental hygiene, and discuss any issues that you may have. You will get a comprehensive exam that will include a thorough cleaning, oral cancer screening, and exam of your jaw and overall mouth. Please make sure to bring any questions with you on your teeth or overall oral health.
Your first visit should take approximately 1 hour. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to process the necessary paperwork and insurance information. Please call us at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.
We accept payment in check, cash, and credit card (Visa and MasterCard). We also take several different dental insurances. If you have any questions about the payment process, we encourage you to give us a call. We will gladly provide clarity and assistance to you.
