At our office, if you are not in pain, I would like your first appointment to be a very comprehensive exam. I would like to meet you, get to know your concerns and hear what brought you to us. Next, I would like to complete a thorough exam. During this time, we will discuss any issues that concern you and obtain any records we may need such as radiographs (x-rays) or casts (plaster models of your mouth). This more comprehensive approach will allow me to make a better diagnosis and prevent overlooking any problems.
“This more comprehensive approach will allow me to make a better diagnosis and prevent overlooking any problems.”
By doing a more complete analysis, we can decide things such as what type of cleaning you will need and where we need to start on your treatment plan. With this gathering of information and your input, I can put together a treatment plan tailored just for your needs. This treatment plan is created only for you. Once you and I have a clear set of goals, we can begin.
“This treatment plan is created only for you.”
This treatment planning is sometimes overlooked, but is truly a vital part of providing customized care for each individual. It also represents the blue print for your dental care for a lifetime.
