Frequently Asked Questions
In the past, you may have been able to schedule your first appointment with a new dentist for a cleaning. However, current standards in the dental field strongly recommend that a patient’s first visit with a new dentist include a comprehensive oral examination and any necessary x-rays. This ensures that the dentist has a full and clear picture of your mouth and oral health before proceeding with care. If a cleaning is the proper next course of treatment, appointments are often available on the same day.
We do our best to ensure an exam is done on the same day as your first cleaning / first visit with us, but on occasion we do have to schedule the exam on a later date
