Your first appointment at Mairs Family Dentistry usually will take about an hour and a half. You will get a chance to meet your doctor and receive a comprehensive oral exam. The exam will include an examination of the mouth for cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.
Your doctor will also do an oral cancer screening, check your blood pressure, and make necessary radiographs. After your exam one of the highly trained hygienists will provide a comprehensive dental cleaning unless you suffer from periodontal disease. Sometimes patients with periodontal disease need treatment that requires several visits. Finally we will make a plan for any treatment, if necessary, and answer all of your questions.
