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.

Patient Comforts

At Avery and Meadows, we want our patients to look forward to their visits, so we offer a variety of patient comforts to make every appointment enjoyable, including:

  • TV in every treatment room
  • Adec chairs
  • Warm, Soft Blankets

My teeth were not always the best. I have a bad gag reflex and I had some bad experiences in the past with some dentists. Thankfully, my last hygienist recommended that I see Dr. Patel. I couldn’t be more grateful. Dr. Patel is a great dentist. She explains every procedure in full detail and she always works with you on any fears and anxiety you might have when going to the dentist. You could not find a friendlier, more caring staff and understanding.

When Dr. Patel recommended that I have two fillings and two crowns, she made sure I was completely at ease. The root canal for the crown and the fillings were done with nitrous oxide sedation, which made the procedure very comfortable for me. Dr. Patel is truly gifted in her profession as well as her staff. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking dental care.
