The Initial Exam is one of the most important visits you as a patient will make at our office. Our goal at this appointment is to establish a baseline and help us create a plan, unique to you, for the development and maintenance of your optimal, dental health. It is very important we come to know you and begin to understand your dental needs at this first appointment. In order to do this, we allow 1.5 hours. After the examination is completed you will have the opportunity to review your x-rays, intraoral photographs and dental findings with Dr Degenhardt and begin to map out the plan which will allow you to maintain a healthy smile for years to come.
