The Dental Check-up

Each person has different oral care needs, meaning every treatment will be unique. During your visit, you and the dentist will review:

Your Medical/Dental History: Your dentist will review your previous dental/ medical history. They will also speak to any concerns you currently have and address them.

A Complete Oral Exam: Here, we will take X-rays, look inside your mouth and thoroughly assess your oral health.

Dental Treatment Plan: The dentist will review your next steps after your exam. They will help create a plan to achieve a brighter, healthier smile.

There are a few options available for booking an appointment. You can submit an appointment request online. Our staff will then contact you and set an appointment close to your preferred dates and times. You can also call or email our office, where our receptionists are eager to help. Lastly, you can come into the clinic and book in person. The easiest, most effective way to book an appointment is by calling us at 705-481-0421!
