Exams And Consultation

Dental Exams


A comprehensive dental exam will be completed when you join our practice as a patient for the first time. During a comprehensive dental exam, your dentist will take a look at the current condition of your mouth, teeth, gums and jawbone. This will be used to assess the condition of your oral health and ascertain whether any treatment is required. 


Routine dental examinations are recommended regardless of whether you have noticed any issues with your gum or your teeth. During your dental exam, different elements of your teeth will be inspected to check for common issues such as cavities and signs of gum disease or the buildup of plaque. Routine dental exams should be completed bi-annually. However, certain patients will benefit from more regular examinations depending on hygiene habits and existing medical conditions. 


Limited exam is performed when there’s an emergency for tooth pain, trauma, or swelling. A dentist will focus on only the problematic area of the mouth during the exam and will take a limited number of x-rays to assess the situation and discuss the treatment options.

Dental Consultations


A dental consultation can be used to check for specific issues without an emergency such as missing teeth / implants, invisalign, smile make-over / veneers, or whitening.  If there is a particular topic that you are hoping to discuss, ensure that you bring it up to your dentist so that they can provide you with the information that you need.


A complimentary second opinion consultation can be performed if you already have existing x-rays and treatment plans that you have questions for.


We will never recommend more than what is necessary and take into consideration what YOU value. We provide a service to our patients that they can trust which does offer fantastic levels of value.
