If you’re new to our practice, your visit will start with a full mouth exam. Our dentist will assess the health of your teeth and gums using:
- CT scans for high-definition images of your teeth and jaw
- iTero digital imaging which can provide an orthodontic simulation, showing you what might be possible to achieve with your smile
With this evaluation, we want to rule out the possibility of gum disease before proceeding with a cleaning and any other treatments.
Gum disease must be stopped to ensure the success of future treatments and to help you maintain lifelong health.

Answers to Your Questions
How long will my teeth cleaning take?
Plan to be at our office for about an hour for your teeth cleaning. Your first appointment might take as long as 90 minutes, however. Ask our front desk when you schedule for more information.
Do you recommend a specific toothbrush or mouthwash?
We do recommend electric Sonicare brushes and even have some available to purchase in our office. We also carry a variety of other products, including:
- Fluoridex and Clinpro toothpaste
- Periosciences antimicrobial gel
- Holistic all-natural rinses
When should my kids have their first dental appointment?
We like to see kids before their first birthday (around the time they start teething). By helping kids have a positive experience at the dentist from a very young age, we can help them develop great lifelong dental health habits.
How much does a dental cleaning cost?
Everyone’s needs are different. A key part of your first appointment is a thorough assessment of your tooth and gum health. This helps us create a plan for your cleaning and future treatment — which of course allows us to share the cost of treatment with you.
