We are looking forward to meeting you and to making your experience with us as stress-free and rewarding as possible. At your first appointment, we will begin with a review of your medical history and status. Next we will evaluate your dental and periodontal conditions along with an assessment of your TMJs (jaw joints) and an oral cancer screening. We will examine any necessary x-ray images, and recommend additional x-ray studies if they are needed. After reaching a diagnosis we will discuss our findings and recommendations, along with a discussion of benefits, risks, time commitment, and costs of treatment.
