What can I expect at my initial exam? Does it include teeth cleaning?

Our dentists know that the key to keeping your smile healthy is regular care and prevention, and your initial exam sets this foundation. On your first visit you will receive a comprehensive dental exam, which takes about 90 minutes and involves a thorough evaluation of your overall dental health. (The only exception is with a dental emergency, in which case your first exam will focus on the immediate problem.) Plaque and tartar removal is performed as part of a separately scheduled dental hygiene exam. Each of these exams serves a unique purpose, and this approach ensures that you receive the best care and the most appropriate treatment.
