"Dr. John is amazing! I have SERIOUS trust issues with dentists stemming from 2 separate bad experiences, but Dr. John is incredible! He is always extremely gentle and reassuring, stopping every few minutes to ask me if I'm okay. He also won't tell you that you need thousands of dollars of dental work if you don't... He'll let you know what is important and what can wait. WONDERFUL!!"- K.B. / Facebook / Oct 03, 2017
What to Expect
An in-depth dental examination will begin with a consultation between our dentist and the patient. We will enquire about the patient's health, including any current conditions or medical problems. Our dentist will discuss with the patient to find out if they have experienced any oral health changes. To get a detailed picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will produce digital X-rays to see the bone structure, teeth, and gums. A visual exam of the mouth with touch will also assist in diagnosing signs of oral decay, cancerous conditions, or disease. The probing device will be used to inspect the health of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and looking for areas of infection.
If our dentists find any areas of worry during the dental exam, they will discuss with the individual about possible preventative measures that may be conducted at Family First Dental Care or at the patient's home. Ongoing check-ups will be vital so that the individual can continue to maintain their oral health. If a patient experiences ongoing problems our dentists may recommended that the individual see a periodontist or endodontist.
The front office staff at Family First Dental Care will contact the patient's dental insurance company to discuss the benefits plan and confirm all up front expenses prior to the visit. Family First Dental Care offers payment plans to help assist with the final bill.
