Q: What can I expect from my first appointment?
A: During your first appointment, your overall dental and oral health will be assessed with a comprehensive oral evaluation. Upon completion of your medical / dental health information, we will ask you to tell us your goals regarding your smile, teeth, and gums. Digital photos and X-rays will be taken of your teeth to identify areas of decay, cracked teeth and malfunctioning restorations. Dr. Samaddar’s goal is to preserve as much of your teeth as possible by catching any issues in their earliest stages. We’ll also assess your gums and recommend the appropriate hygiene treatment for you.
