Adults’ and Teens’ First Visit
Your first visit to our office enables us to meet you and identify your dental needs and to ensure that we are able to perform and maintain the necessary care for your optimal dental health. We perform a comprehensive examination that checks the integrity of each individual tooth and your periodontal (gum) health. This is done by both an oral and radiographic examination, preceded by a thorough discussion of your concerns and expectations as well as a review of your medical history. We believe that your dental health and treatment is a shared commitment. All of your questions and concerns are a priority for us and we want to create a dental plan that is right for you.
Children’s First Visit
Dr. Duarte has a passion for caring for children. Our office believes in creating an environment that is fun and educational for children. The first dental visit is geared towards positive dental experiences with an emphasis on education on the care of your child’s teeth and growth and development. Included in this discussion is also a review of your child’s nutrition, and oral health care instructions.
