All of your dental and sedation questions will be answered and this is your time to ask questions and share your concerns and expectations with our Doctors!

Pictures & Radiographs

After the consultation with our Doctors, you will be taken to the examination room where our pleasant assistants will begin taking pictures and x-rays of your teeth to aid with our comprehensive examination.


Our doctors will then evaluate the x-rays along with an examination of your mouth and teeth, assess the health of your gums, and provide an oral cancer screening.

Review of Findings

Following the examination, our doctors will review their findings while giving you a tour of your mouth (using pictures and x-rays) and answer any follow up questions you may have.
