How Long Will My Appointment Take
If you are scheduled for an exam, expect your visit to last 60-80 minutes. Consultations and Second Opinions typically take less time. Expect your visit to last 30-60 minutes.
What To Expect
Your new dentist will perform a complete oral exam and discuss any treatment you may need with you. For more information on the exam, click on the Services tab. Also, feel free to bring up any questions or concerns you have about your smile with your dentist or hygienist.
If possible, a professional teeth cleaning will be performed. A teeth cleaning helps prevent future problems with your oral health, like cavities and periodontal disease.
Finally, a treatment coordinator will assist you with any financial arrangements necessary and scheduling of your next appointment.
