Routine Office Visits
Welcome to our office. We look forward to meeting all of your dental needs. For your convenience, we have included a link to our new patient form. Please feel free to download this form and bring it with you to your first dental visit.
A typical first visit to our office will include x-rays and views of your mouth with an intraoral camera. With the use of digital x-rays both patient and doctor will view magnified images of your mouth as well as the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots and tooth decay.
During the first visit we will also review and update your medical history. It is imperative that your medical history is the most complete and up-to-date information on your health. Be prepared to identify any medications that you are currently taking. With this information we are able to choose the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
We encourage regular checkups for three years old and older. Regular hygiene appointments include a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth as well as a comprehensive oral exam by Dr. Nussear. During the oral exam, Dr. Nussear will complete an oral cancer screening, evaluate the overall health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue, and jaw joints. Dr. Nussear will also assess current fillings and restorations. A typical hygiene appointment will last between 40 and 60 minutes. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. Please notify us within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment to cancel an appointment.
The cost of your treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our office staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment, and each of your available payment plan options.
