For New Patients

REGULAR CHECKUPS  -  No matter what your age, visiting the dentist on a regular schedule will keep your teeth and gums healthy and your smile Bright! 

The American Dental Association recommends that you and your family, visit the dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings.

Regular check ups include a thorough oral exam, diagnosis of any problems with the teeth and  gums, cleaning, polishing and instruction on excellent home care.  If any problems are detected, suggested treatment options are explained with a discussion of the risks, alternatives, and benefits associated.

YOUR FIRST VISIT - Your first visit is all about you!  Your comfort, your happiness and your dental health!

Your first visit to the doctor typically includes an x-ray survey that allows the doctor to view the structure of the jaws, the position of any teeth, tooth decay and bone loss associated with gum disease.  You will also receive a complete oral cancer screening and oral exam.  Examination of the teeth and the gums will determine the overall health of your mouth and potential risks you may have for decay and gum disease.

The initial visit also involves getting your complete medical history.  When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health, including recent hospital stays and surgery.   Please have a current list of any medications you are taking, prescription and non prescription, including the names, doses, and frequency.  A complete medical history can assist the doctor in preventing any oral health problems associated with medications or systemic illnesses.

It is also important to bring up any fears or anxiety you may have about dental treatment.  Past experiences, both good and bad, can help Dr. April recommend the best treatment options for you.  Questions about your dental treatment needs are always welcomed by Dr. April and her staff.
