  • Make a list of questions to ask our office, so you don’t forget anything on the day of your appointment. This includes any concerns you have, or oral problems you’ve been experiencing.
  • If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your insurance card with you
  • We will complete a comprehensive exam, take radiographs to check for decay between your teeth as well as bone health, and create a treatment plan individualized for your specific dental needs.
