At 21st Century Dentistry, we strive to provide you with the absolute best dental care possible. Your first visit is very important to us, and you can expect to spend about 90 minutes in our office for your new patient comprehensive exam.
When you first arrive, Ashley or Shannon will warmly greet you and help you fill out your new patient forms if necessary. You will then be introduced to one of our friendly dental assistants or hygienists, who will go over your paperwork and ask follow-up questions to better learn about you and your goals for your oral health.
In order for Dr. Dickerson or Dr. Thompson to perform a thorough exam, we will gather valuable diagnostic information throughout your first appointment. We utilize intraoral photos, digital radiographs, and a Diagnodent to name a few. Most people are familiar with photos and radiographs, but the Diagnodent is a small, handheld device we commonly use for the early detection of cavities.
