At your first visit, we do more than examine your teeth! We take the time to get to know you. We will review your medical and oral health history and discuss any concerns you may have.

We will then perform a comprehensive examination that includes:

  • Oral cancer screening
  • Digital and panoramic x-rays
  • Intra-oral camera exam
  • Cavity detection
  • Periodontal (gum) exam
  • Cosmetic consultation
  • TMJ exam

We will then discuss our findings and possible solution options for you at this visit. For more complex treatment recommendations, we may ask you to reschedule for a second consult visit with the doctor.

I was born with seriously discolored teeth. About 20 years ago, I had the front four upper teeth veneered, but they need to be redone, as did all my teeth. When my lifelong dentist retired, I sought recommendations and often heard of these guys, so I decided to try them. Dr. Patel suggested veneers on my upper teeth only as my lowers weren’t really visible when I smiled. Of course, I can always do the lowers later, but this let me try it and save money at the same time. I had three long visits – one to get molds and shapes, one for the temporaries, and one for the veneers. The staff was great at making it comfortable and explained all the steps. They answered every question! I can’t say the process was exactly fun, but it was certainly worth the mild discomfort. If you have been thinking about changing your smile, don’t wait as long as I did. Don’t be afraid. Just do it! Dr. Patel and all the staff are very reassuring and helpful – from how to pay, through the follow-up care – everyone is incredibly nice. My whole family has been coming for years. In fact, my full-grown kids still get their teeth cleaned here when they are back in town.
