You will then be greeted by our registered dental assistant and escorted to our Digital Panoramic Room for a panoramic radiograph. Here you will be asked to take off any jewelry or head accessories that might interfere with taking a digital panoramic radiograph.

After taking our Digital Panoramic Radiograph you will then be guided to an operatory room to take single x-rays within your mouth.  If at any time during the x-ray process you have a concern or question please don’t hesitate to ask us, your comfort is of great important to us.


Oral Examination

After your x-rays, you will then be taken to our relaxing and entertaining dental room to have your oral exam initiated.

The dentist will evaluate your teeth and evaluate the x-rays that were just taken.

The dentist will then discuss any problems relating to your teeth or gums with you.

When acceptable, a normal dental cleaning can be performed.


Treatment Planning

After your oral examination, a dental treatment plan will be formed to cater your dental needs.  The dentist will go over the dental treatment plan with you first. After reviewing the treatment plan with your dentist, the front desk receptionist will present the treatment plan for a second time, discuss dental fees, discuss financing and options with you.  Please feel free to ask any questions during the treatment plan process.



After the front desk receptionist has discussed the treatment plan, an appointment will be scheduled for your dental treatment.

Same day treatment can be requested if there is adequate time on our schedule and if there are no medical, financing, or authorization restrictions.
