Initial Examination

As a children’s dentist, our doctor is trained to diagnose disease. The examination includes a thorough introduction to the clinic to acquaint the child with the sensory challenges of a dental office.

The initial consultation includes screenings for oral pathology, an evaluation of growth and development, an orthodontic needs assessment, a gum disease evaluation, a visual examination for tooth decay, as well as an evaluation of any current restorations, concerns or complaints from the patient/parent. The dentist will also discuss risk factors for disease, instructions for oral hygiene and information related to nutritional counseling.
