New Patient Examination

Discovering You

We understand that your teeth and mouth are part of you: a living, breathing person with various body parts connected as a complex system, with emotions, ambitions and concerns. During your first visit we will observe your current dental health, and discuss your medical background in general, your life circumstances, needs and desires, and aesthetic concerns.

Based on our observations we will together choose the most appropriate direction for your future dental care.

What to Expect?

Your visit will be about 50 minutes. We like to know our patients completely, so we will cover many areas of your health including:

  • Listening to your concerns and answering your questions
  • Digital x-rays of all your teeth and a panoramic digital x-ray
  • Digital photographs of your mouth and smile
  • Assessing the fit and function of any previous dental work
  • Examining the health of your gums
  • Evaluating your teeth alignment, bite and TMJ
  • Performing an oral cancer screening
  • Addressing any aesthetic concerns you may have
  • Understanding if you have anxiety about visiting the dentist
  • Reviewing your complete medical history
  • Discussing how your general health may impact your dental health, and vice versa

Based on our observations we will together choose the most appropriate direction for your future dental care.

Dr. Newman will then sit down with you and discuss the findings and their significance to you. Based on our observations we will together choose the most appropriate direction for your future dental care.

Rather than telling you what treatment you need, we will fully explain what can be done to improve or maintain your dental health. We will discuss the options, advantages, risks, pros and cons, and will encourage your participation so the appropriate treatment plan for you can be developed.

At the end of the appointment, we will leave you with the ability to decide what’s right for you. A written estimate can be provided for any treatment options you have discussed.
