My First Visit

At Frankston Dentistry, we perform a comprehensive examination at your initial visit in our office. Our goal is to determine your immediate dental needs as well as plan for your future dental care.

 At your comprehensive exam:

  • A full mouth series of x-rays will be taken by the assistant
  • We will discuss your dental and overall health since your last dental exam
  • Dr will review your radiographs, checking for decay, cracks, and chips
  • Evaluate your bite and jaw
  • Examine and chart existing restorations
  • Screen for gum disease and periodontal disease
  • Conduct TMJ examination
  • Screen for oral cancer
  • Discuss with you any cosmetic concerns you may have as well

All the above information will be gathered and a personalized treatment plan will be developed and discussed with you.  We do NOT clean your teeth at this first appointment because we need to know your oral health before scheduling the appropriate type of cleaning.  This is done to ensure you are scheduled with enough time to perform a proper cleaning and to guarantee you receive the best care possible.  We want to help you maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime!

Financing & Insurance

  • Cash, check or credit card at time of service
