Your smile is more than a first impression. Did you know that your oral health offers clues about your overall health-or that problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body? The best way to protect your oral health is to brush, floss and eat right at home, but also to see your dentist once every six months for a routine cleaning and exam.
When you arrive at our office, you will be greeted with friendly faces. During your first visit, we will go over dental and medical history form, take X-rays of your teeth and mouth and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We will also ask you how you prefer to be contacted about future appointments.
After one of our hygienists clean and polish your teeth, Dr. Kassem will check you teeth and gums for any cavitites or potential oral health problems, such as tooth decay or gingivitis. He will also discuss your x-rays with you and come up with a treatment plan, if necessary.
Please remember to bring:
- Your completed patient information form
- Your insurance card
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Because we can book up quickly, we recommend scheduling your six-month appointment before you leave the office.
We will give you a reminder card, but our system will also text, email or call you to remind you of the appointment as it gets closer.
