Going to the dentist can be an overwhelming experience, especially first-time visits. We will make your appointment as stress free as possible. Our goal is to make the patient experience comfortable. Dr. Sharon will perform a complete oral examination and discuss any treatment you may need. The examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer. Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit, or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. Your first appointment will take between 1–1½ hours. Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
