Dr. Patel’s goal is to achieve the highest quality of comprehensive dental care possible. We believe the only way to successfully attain long term oral health
and beauty is to start with a solid dental foundation for every patient. This begins with a comprehensive new patient exam. As a new patient, you will initially be scheduled with one of our highly qualified dental hygienists. At this visit, we will review your medical/dental history, take necessary digital x-rays, measure your gums and establish overall periodontal health. Once all of these factors are reviewed, Dr. Patel and his staff will determine a personalized Soft Tissue (Gums) Treatment Plan to meet your individual requirements.
Oftentimes, all of this can be completed during your initial appointment. The exception to this would be if you require a more extensive cleaning such as a full mouth debridement or scaling/root planing. Once your Soft Tissue Treatment Plan is completed, Dr. Patel will assess your overall dental health and discuss any current or potential Hard Tissue (Teeth) Concerns. We will then schedule future Hard Tissue Treatment appointments with Dr. Patel along with continuing care appointments to help maintain the Soft Tissue.
Although this is an ideal scenario, Dr. Patel realizes that in the real world a dental emergency is sometimes what prompts an initial visit to his office. If this is the case, our main goal is to get you comfortable and out of pain. Once this is accomplished, we will proceed in the comprehensive manner as discussed above.
