Your First Visit
We do everything we can to make sure you and your family have an outstanding first visit with us! Our friendly team will make sure you feel welcome when you’re here. We speak English and Spanish in our office.
First-time patients get a comprehensive exam with our hygienists and Dr. Blanca Fernandez. This includes a full set of digital X-rays. We may also use panoramic, or full-mouth images of your teeth and gums. We look at each and every tooth (and so can you on our monitor!) with an intraoral camera. It’s no bigger than a pen and gives us amazing detail!
After we take your X-rays, Dr. Fernandez will review them and then come in to talk with you and let you know any problems we may have seen in your images. She’ll ask you about your dental and medical history, and about your goals for your dental health. Then she’ll examine your teeth and gums and discuss any treatment you may need. We’ll then clean and polish your teeth and apply a fluoride treatment if you need it.
