What to Expect at Your First Dental Appointment
All new patients are introduced to our practice through a comprehensive examination done by Dr. Filo and/or Dr. Hormoz.
This initial visit will consist of an oral cancer screening, an examination of your gums to screen for and diagnose periodontal disease, temporomandibular joint examination to evaluate any abnormalities, and an analysis of your overall oral health, active decay, and occlusal wear. If you have an emergency, we will diagnose and provide treatment during your first visit to our office.
At the end of your new patient exam, your dentist will discuss the diagnosis and oral health issues and recommend treatment accordingly. Any questions you might have will be addressed prior to commencing any treatment.
If you will be utilizing dental benefits, make sure to contact our office prior to your first visit so that we can confirm your benefits plan and coverage. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims and verify any co-pay amount due for your visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to your dental visit (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)

Dental technology has streamlined many procedures, which makes your care more effective and less stressful. Diagnostic technology like panoramic x-rays isn’t just more efficient. It allows us to view all your teeth, your upper and lower jaws and your surrounding bone structure and tissues, in a single image. This capability allows us to identify any abnormalities and treat them long before they become a problem.
