Welcome to Our Practice
We promise to treat you with respect and compassion. We strive to deliver the best diagnosis and treatment currently available in dentistry.
Our goal at your initial visit is to address your chief concern. This may be a toothache, sensitivity, cosmetic evaluation, broken tooth, a cleaning, and/or a check up.
However, before we take care of your reason for the visit, we have some paperwork for you to fill out. Although no one seems to be happy about the increasing volumes of legal paperwork, there are many agencies in the state of California that require us to have you fill it out. But that paperwork provides us information we need to treat you safely, and may give us the clues we need to manage your oral health. We are sorry we live in an age that requires us to possess your personal and confidential information, however, we have spared no expense to safeguard that information with our protective firewall.
Once we address your chief concern, a complete exam is always necessary. During the comprehensive exam we will get to know you by asking a few questions about your health history, dental history and how we can best meet your dental needs. Then we will take necessary x-rays and check the overall condition of the gums and supporting bone (the periodontium), teeth, existing restorations, and soft tissue for oral cancer.
