Day of your visit:
Quality dental care requires a team effort. We understand your first visit to a new dentist can be stressful. Your initial visit is the foundation to a long-term and trusting relationship with your dentist. Upon arrival to our office, you will be greeted and registered by one of our friendly staff. Then, you will be escorted to one of our private operatories. You will have the chance prior to your exam to discuss your dental health concerns and expectations. Then, we will perform advanced digital x-rays which instantaneously produce high resolution x-ray images of your teeth and jaw. Digital radiography produces 90% less radiation than traditional radiography systems. Dr. Ayoubi will perform a comprehensive dental examination. This involves a screening for oral cancer, a tooth-by-tooth charting to identify and record the current condition of your teeth, and a periodontal exam to assess the condition of your gums. State-of-the art intra-oral digital photographs will then be taken. Any abnormal findings from the digital x-rays and photographs will be presented to you on a high resolution monitor. You will see exactly the problems spots and receive a careful explanation of any dental work that would be needed. Dr. Ayoubi will provide you with an in-depth dental health report. She will discuss any necessary procedures that will be required to address your dental health needs as well as any alternatives or options. If any treatment will be needed, you will be presented with a comprehensive treatment plan and estimate. Often, your first visit will include a comprehensive general cleaning, though if it’s been a while since you last had your teeth cleaned, you may need to be scheduled for a longer visit at a later time.
