Welcome to Waterview Dental! We are always excited to get to know our new patients and address any questions or concerns they may have.
As a new patient, it is normal to have questions or concerns regarding what to expect during an initial visit. Please let our team know if you feel uneasy or anxious prior to dental appointments. At Waterview Dental, we are dedicated to providing you with a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
At Waterview Dental, we recommend that new patients are scheduled for a 60 minute appointment with one of our dentists for a thorough initial examination. During your comprehensive oral examination, your dentist will assess your gums for periodontal disease and/or gum recession, chart each tooth to document prior dental work and screen for oral cancer. Your dentist will also take photographs of your teeth and x-rays to assess bone loss, cavities, abscesses and/or cysts unseen to the naked eye. Finally, your dentist will create a treatment plan with you that will provide you with options regarding any diagnoses.
We are always gentle, at Waterview Dental. During your hygiene appointment, commonly known as a ‘cleaning’, our hygienists will carefully and gently remove plaque, tartar and staining on your teeth. Your hygienist will also advise you on hygiene habits to adopt and ways to improve your oral health.
At Waterview Dental, we give you plenty of reasons to smile! Please do not hesitate to contact our office – our team is here to answer any question you may have to help you feel at ease. We look forward to meeting you soon!
