A consultation is your initial visit. First we do a thorough intraoral examination, review your general health history including any medications you take, and make digital radiographs of your teeth and jaws.
Then we discuss your goals and what you want us to accomplish for you. With this information we formulate a detailed treatment plan to accomplish your goals. If more than one treatment option is possible we formulate treatment plans for each option.
We present and explain these options to you in detail including the exact cost of each option. After you decide which option best suits your needs and desires our staff will discuss payment options.
Just give us a call and we will make an appointment as soon as possible. There is no charge for your consultation or radiographs.
