New Patient Exam

We are always accepting new patients. Please come 15 minutes prior to your exam to allow time to fill out some required forms.
Next, our dental assistant will take you in to start taking X-rays and/or panoramic radiograph and our dentist will do the initial comprehensive exam and will discuss with you about the condition of your teeth and oral health. Your questions are always welcome, and you always have the final say in your treatment. If you want a second opinion, no problem-you can obtain a copy of your X-rays at no charge.
In the end, if you have any concerns including the payment options and how your dental insurance works, our receptionist will assist you.

Teeth Cleaning

Our dental hygienist will perform your teeth cleaning. She will check your gums for any signs of gingivitis (inflamed gums) or periodontitis (bone disease). If she detects any dental decay or major problems, she will confer with the dentist to determine next steps. During this visit, you can ask your hygienist to show you the proper way to brush and floss your teeth.
A professional tooth cleaning is a preventive check-up and is scheduled twice a year, so before you leave, please make sure to book your next cleaning.

Dental Emergencies

The dental emergency is a broad term used to describe an issue involving your teeth and supporting tissues. It does not always involve pain. Some dental emergencies can be the following:
  1. Toothache
  2. Facial swelling
  3. Tooth or gums infection
  4. Tooth crack, fracture, and mobility
  5. Broken crown/fracture and mobility
  6. Broken dentures
  7. Broken or loose implants
  8. Post extraction pain and infection or dry socket
We always have room to accommodate dental emergencies. If you are encountering any dental problem, please do not hesitate to call our office as early as possible.

Children's dentistry

The recommended age for a first visit to the dentist is approximately around one years old, or about six months after the appearance of the first tooth. The main goal of this appointment is to provide you, the parents, recommendations regarding your child’s dental hygiene and habits. We are also glad to answer your questions and to discuss any concerns you may have. 
We want your child to have a positive experience at the dental office, from the moment they arrive, through to the end of their appointment. A positive dental experience not only promotes a trust relationship between your child and the dentist but also encourages your child to follow the dental recommendations we teach them. A positive experience promotes the best possible dental health for your child—and that is our goal. 

Upon entry into our office, your child will be greeted warmly. When the appointment starts, our professionals will take care to explain in a simple and fun way any new procedures that will be done in your child’s mouth (exam, cleaning, sealant or other) to reduce any fear, they may have. During the procedures, we will continue to reassure, encourage and make sure they are comfortable. At the end of the appointment, we will give a reward to highlight your child’s accomplishment.  

We recommend scheduling your child’s appointment during the morning. This time of the day is generally associated with better cooperation from children. We also suggest that you allow us the privilege of explaining to your child what the appointment will be like. Some parents have had unfortunate experiences in dental offices and may possibly describe to their child an unfavorable procedure. This can contribute to their child’s possible anxiety. We will explain every aspect of the visit in a way that lets them know they are in a safe environment with professionals they can trust.
