THE NEW PATIENT EXPERIENCE
Do you remember what it was like the first time you walked into your previous dentist’s office? Probably not. We are here to change that, buckle up and get comfy because this will be completely different than what you’re used to.
The new patient experience at Knox Mountain Dentistry is unique to our office, and we believe that it provides us with an opportunity to get to know you as a person, not just your oral health needs. At this appointment, you will meet with Dr. Sanders one-on-one and have a complete and thorough assessment. We will discuss any specific concerns you may have, as well as answer any questions that come up along the way.
Your exam will include all of the following:
- A review of your dental and medical history
- A complete extraoral and intraoral examination
- A series of clinical photos
- A digital scan of all of your teeth
- An oral cancer screening using VELscope® technology if indicated
- An evaluation of your overall oral health
- Oral hygiene education
- Radiographs (X-rays) to detect decay, disease or concerns as indicated
- Periodontal probing to assess the health of your gum tissues
- A treatment plan of any areas of concerns by priority
- Estimates of needed treatment
- Referrals to specialists if indicated
- A predetermination of treatment coverage for insurance
Phew! There are a lot of things there, but trust us when we say that this thorough assessment will really pave the way to a healthy future.
