During Your Appointment
If you have pre-registered and filled out your new patient forms online, your appointment will begin right away. All new Smile Avenue Family Dentistry patients begin their first visit with a comprehensive oral exam and professional cleaning. You will first spend time with our hygienist who will do a preliminary examination of your mouth and teeth. Digital x-rays will be taken to provide us with information regarding any issues that may be going on beneath the surface of your teeth. The hygienist will check your gums to determine if you are at risk for any periodontal or gum disease. This exam will allow the hygienist to make recommendations if periodontal work needs to be done. It also provides information regarding the best type of cleaning for your teeth.
After the initial phase of the exam is carried out, and your teeth have been cleaned, your mouth will be further examined by Dr. Vuong. He will also talk to you about the findings of your preliminary exam. A more in-depth exam of your teeth will be given along with an inspection of the soft tissues in your mouth and a screening for oral cancer.
If you have questions about any of the procedures or the findings of your dental exam, please be sure to ask them. We also want to know if you have any dental concerns. We welcome your questions and comments. Contact our office today to schedule your first visit with Smile Avenue Family Dentistry. We look forward to meeting you!
