At your initial dental visit, our dentist will talk to you about your completed New Patient forms that reflect your medical and dental history. Dr. Bohay will examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, make X-rays of your teeth as needed and complete a TMJ (temporomandibular or jaw joint) exam. After reviewing your dental profile, a diagnosis will be discussed with you.
If treatment such as a root canal (endodontics), braces (orthodontics) or oral surgery is needed, we will plan to treat you in our office or refer you to a specialist. We will discuss your options for treatment and fee payment and help you determine the best plan to fit your needs. Co-pays are collected and balances are due at each visit.
During subsequent regular follow-up visits, we will examine your teeth and gums, screen you for oral cancer, clean your teeth and make plans for treatment, as needed.
We will also discuss any pain or dental problems you may be experiencing and answer any questions you may have.
