What can I expect at my first dental appointment?
Every patient is different, so when you call our office, our knowledgeable team will ask some questions regarding your oral health that will help us maximize your first dental visit.
Our ideal approach at Oakwood Dental is to get you started with Dr. Jones or Dr. McQuigg for a full exam so that we can identify any oral conditions that may require your attention. This provides you with an opportunity to discuss anything about your oral health that causes concern or has recently changed. This also and gives you the time you need to discuss your goals for your oral health.
We also know that most patients want to have their teeth cleaned at their first dental exam. We do our best to accommodate our patients and schedule a dental cleaning along with your exam. It is important to remember that if it has been awhile since your last dental appointment and you have some catching up to do, it could take more than one appointment. We will help you get back on track to good oral health!
Taking x-rays is also part of our new patient appointment. X-rays are a useful diagnostic tool to identify oral conditions such as decay or bone loss. We use ultra-safe digital x-rays at our Castle Rock dental office.
