Your initial appointment will consist of acquiring valuable diagnostic information including complete oral examination, an oral cancer screening, a full mouth series of radiographs, and important intra-oral and extra-oral photographic images. We will review our findings with you and provide a complete tour of your mouth and summary of our findings. A dental prophylaxis (cleaning) may or may not be carried out on this initial visit, depending upon your requests.
