Comprehensive New Patient Exams
The new patient exam is a comprehensive dental examination conducted by Dr. Zemskova or our other dentists on staff to assess your oral health and gather necessary information about your dental history. It is typically the first step in establishing a professional relationship with your dentist and creating a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
What is a New Patient Exam?
Medical and Dental History: The dentist will ask about your general health, medications, and past dental treatments.
Oral Examination: The dentist thoroughly examines your mouth, teeth, and gums for any dental issues or concerns.
X-rays and Imaging: If needed, dental X-rays or other imaging techniques are used to get a detailed view of your teeth and supporting structures.
Additional Diagnostic Tests: Additional tests may be conducted to assess your gum health, bite alignment, or dental occlusion.
Teeth Cleaning (Optional): A dental cleaning may be performed by our hygienist to remove plaque and stains from your teeth.
How Do New Patient Exams Work?
The new patient exam is designed to provide Dr. Zemskova and our other dentists with a comprehensive understanding of your oral health and to identify any existing or potential dental issues. By gathering information about your medical and dental history, conducting a thorough examination, and utilizing diagnostic tools like X-rays, the dentist can assess your oral health condition accurately.
