What can I expect at my first visit?
We strive to make every visit a positive experience. At your first dental appointment, you can count on being greeted by our friendly and professional team. We will ask a few questions about your dental history and ask you to fill out some medical history forms if you did not do it in advance.
When we take you back for your appointment, you will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Michael Alano and discuss any concerns you might have about your oral health or the appearance of your smile.
Dr. Alano will perform a complete exam of your gums, teeth, jaw joints, and bite. He will look for signs of any dental conditions and alert you to anything that requires treatment. We also offer an oral cancer screening because your dentist is often the first person to notice any suspicious lesions.
It is at this appointment that we determine the type of dental cleaning that will be best for you. We offer several levels of professional dental cleanings to meet your needs:
Regular prophy appointment – For patients with excellent oral health and no history of gum disease.
Mid-level hygiene appointment – To remove tartar from your teeth. This is a common dental cleaning for those patients who may be late on their regular cleaning.
Periodontal cleaning – This is a highly specialized dental cleaning that helps to keep gum disease under control.
We leave plenty of time for you to ask questions and learn how to achieve your health and cosmetic goals for your smile. We enjoy exceeding your expectations every time!
