At Scotia Dental, we love welcoming new patients. During your first visit, our friendly, knowledgeable staff will meet with you to review any current oral health concerns, as well as your oral health history. We’ll do a complete series of x-rays, and also take a few digital photographs in order to fully review your mouth, teeth and gums. These photos will be used to create your personalized treatment plan.
Before you meet with your doctor to discuss any smile concerns that you have, one of our hygienists will perform an oral cancer screening. This involves a visual examination of your head, face, and neck. The hygienist will listen to your voice for chronic hoarseness, and check your neck nodes, glands, and the TMJ joint for swelling, lumps, or any differences between your right and left side.
Please allow approximately 60-90 minutes for your first appointment.
At Scotia Dental, our focus is to improve the physical and emotional well-being of our patients and enhance the quality versus quantity of time spent with us. Check out just a few of the things that will take the pain out of your next visit.
If you’d like to learn more about today’s innovative dental treatments, we have educational multimedia on hand for you.
While undergoing treatment we want you to be comfortable, so we have invested in extra plush chairs and gel pillows. Your comfort is a priority.
We are time-sensitive. We know your time is valuable and endeavor to provide you with your treatment in a timely fashion - smile included!
