A new patient hygiene visit in our office is a introduction appointment and a chance to learn more about you and about your overall dental health. We reserve about an hour and a half for your initial appointment. You will be given a tour of our office, introduced to all the team members and asked to fill out registration forms. These forms can be filled out prior to your appointment and are found under the Patient Registration tab.
At the start of your appointment, the hygienist will review with you your medical history and dental history. She will record any existing dental work and take the necessary digital x-rays. She will use a intra-oral camera to take pictures of individual teeth and of any areas of concern and a digital camera to capture your and close-ups of smile. After a thorough examination, the hygienist will determine the type of cleaning you made need.
