We recommend that every new patient we see books a new patient exam with our Dentists.  In this 40 minute appointment, the Dentist will do a full mouth exam and take 2 small x-rays to diagnose decay and a full mouth OPG x-ray to see all the teeth and jaw.  Any future treatment will be discussed at this appointment and a treatment plan will be given to the patient.  The Dentist will recommend that you see one of our University trained Oral Health Therapist for a full mouth clean.
