Your First Dental Visit

At your first visit to our office, we will thoroughly examine the teeth and gums to catch any underlying dental problems. We may also perform an oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, and bite analysis. During the dental cleaning, our dental hygienists will remove plaque from around the gums and teeth.

After a thorough examination, we can help create a treatment plan for your specific needs. You will have an opportunity to discuss your dental concerns and goals during a consultation. If we find a dental problem, or if you have concerns, Dr. Leatherwood or a member of her team will explain treatment options to you. We will help you choose which treatment is best for your long-term dental health and cosmetic goals.

Additionally, we recommend you bring the following with you to your visit:

  • Dental insurance card, forms, or information
  • A valid form of identification
  • Dental records, if available
