Your first visit to our practice establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. For adults we reserve 60 minutes for a complete exam which includes the following:
• A review of your health history
• X-rays when necessary
• Intra-oral photos
• Hygiene evaluation
• A comprehensive examination
Drs. Davis and Bourji will walk you through their findings and work closely with you to create a dental plan designed to meet your unique oral health goals. At this appointment, we reserve a second 60-minute appointment for your cleaning. There are some cases where a longer 90-minute appointment may be recommended.
Youth appointments, ages 14-18 are typically 60 minutes long and children's appointments (younger than 14) are typically 45 minutes long. Child exams should begin at about 3 years old unless the parent notices something unusual with their child's teeth. The first visit may be a "happy visit" where the child gets to explore the dentist office to get comfortable. If your child is ready during their first appointment, they will get their teeth brushed and counted, receive a prize, a new toothbrush, and a ride in the dentist chair!
Please note: If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason at all, we are happy to do so with 48 hours' notice prior to your appointment. If you have any additional questions about what to expect during your first exam, please feel free to contact us at 781.862.6433 to find out more.
