We want you to feel at home! So here’s what you can expect on your first visit.
The first visit will not only familiarize us with you but, you’ll also get to know us better. We encourage you to ask all your questions and concerns and to describe your unique smile goals.
At Premier Dentistry, your health and safety are our number one priority. Therefore, a big focus of your initial visit is discussing your health and medical background. This is because some medications and/or conditions can directly affect dental treatment. So make sure you can specify the medications (vitamins and supplements included) you’re taking along with their dosages.
The next step is a full mouth X-Ray along with an overall exam of your mouth. During this checkup, Dr. Shim will evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Included in the checkup is a non-invasive screening for oral cancer. If there are any specific signs in your mouth that need treatment, we’ll provide you with the best treatment plan. After that, if needed, a comprehensive cleaning will be done to remove all the plaque from your teeth. Finally, you’ll be all good to go with a pearly smile!
