Dr. Stodola - "We recognize that for many people being at the dental office is not their favorite place to be. Our advice: The best way to avoid spending a lot of time and money in the dental chair is to have a dental check-up and cleaning every 6 months. In this way, any dental concerns can be identified and treated early, when there are quicker, easier, and less costly solutions to the problem."
During your first visit, a thorough oral examination will be completed to gather the information needed to create a personalized dental treatment plan just for you.
- We will review your dental and medical history forms with you and any necessary x-rays will be taken.
- An oral cancer screening/head and neck exam will be done.
- We will document all existing dentistry you have, along with any other conditions we see that need to be addressed, such as cavities and broken or missing teeth.
- A thorough evaluation of your gum tissue will be performed.
After these assessments have been completed, and if time allows, your hygienist will proceed to clean your teeth.
