Your First Dental Visit

Excellence in dentistry begins with a thorough examination, diagnosis of existing oral conditions, and development of a treatment plan to move us toward the goals we will establish together. We believe this in-depth examination to be the cornerstone of quality dentistry and one of the best services our profession can provide.

Comprehensive Dental Exam

During your exam, our team will carefully listen to your primary concerns including your aesthetic goals and long-term expectations. We want to make certain you have the opportunity to share your questions, desires, and concerns without feeling rushed. Then, after thoroughly reviewing your medical and dental history, Dr. John Clary will examine your teeth, gums, bite, jaw joints, and soft tissues. Our state-of-the art tools, including the DIAGNOdent, digital radiography, VELscope, and intraoral cameras ensure a thorough and highly diagnostic dental experience.

Customized Treatment Plans

Then, from the information that we have gathered, we’ll sit down with you and thoroughly discuss our findings, treatment recommendations, and options. Together with the doctor, you’ll develop a customized treatment plan – a blueprint for lifelong oral health – that will address your unique needs and goals.

We have focused our practice on prevention and health as opposed to one that simply emphasizes emergency and repair care. We believe that by identifying and treating the underlying causes of dental disease, we can be effective in preventing the destruction that can subsequently occur. As a result, our patients experience the many benefits of excellent, lifelong dental health.
