Whatever the purpose of your visit, your comfort is our priority. If you’re experiencing any dental pain upon your arrival, we will make sure to restore your comfort before you leave.
Our friendly office staff will welcome you and provide you with any new patient forms to be completed. A dental assistant will then escort you to a room for x-rays or digital photographs if needed.
Comprehensive Exam and Consultation
Dr. Patel will complete a thorough examination. He will:
- Review your dental and medical history
- Discuss your primary concern
- Perform a detailed exam of your mouth and teeth
- Explain your options for treatment and approximate costs
Expect to be in our office about 30-45 minutes for this appointment. Since we are focusing on diagnosing your needs at this time, we don’t ordinarily do a cleaning at this first visit. However, if you want that, it can be arranged. If you choose to have our hygienist do a cleaning, you can expect your appointment to last about 90 minutes in total.
