First Visit and New Patient Exam
Thorough, comprehensive exams for lasting treatment
When you come to our office you will meet a warm, welcoming staff that put you at ease. Our doctors and staff are friendly, knowledgeable dental professionals who genuinely care about their patients.
We’ll help you complete your paperwork as needed and give you a tour of the office so you can see everything and understand what we do. You will see the state-of-the-art technology we use for non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures that increase your comfort and minimize the amount of time in the chair.
Your comprehensive exam, evaluation, and consultation
There are many parts to your exam, each of which provides an in-depth view of a different aspect of your dental and gum condition.
Thorough teeth and gum inspection
We will conduct a full inspection of the condition of your teeth and gums, including a periodontal exam to check the depths of the pockets between your teeth and gums. Pocket depth shows the severity of any gum disease.
Comprehensive digital X-rays
We use digital X-rays which emit 80% less radiation than conventional X-ray devices, and the results are available immediately. From this, we get a comprehensive picture of your tooth and bone structure.
Oral cancer screening
Next, we conduct an oral cancer screening. Although it’s rare to find anything, an oral cancer screening can detect an issue before it has a chance to develop into anything further.
Discussion of findings and treatment options
The doctor does a thorough evaluation of the findings. Dr. Hodges will go over your treatment options with you in detail, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each. We will happily answer any of your questions.
