Frequently Asked Questions About the First Appointment

Will the exam hurt?

We will be as gentle as possible. We always try to treat you like we would like to be treated.

Do I need x-rays?

Generally not at the initial visit.  We want to get a general idea of the primary problem, as well as other dental problems which need to be addressed before we start taking a lot of x-rays.  However, if you have an emergency or an acute problem requiring immediate attention we will need x-rays before doing an treatment.
