What To Expect At Your Appointment
Dr. Alexander will perform a comprehensive dental exam including digital x-rays in order to screen for dental decay and the potential for other dental diseases. A head and neck exam will be performed in which the TMJ (jaw joint) will be evaluated, jaw muscles will be examined to assess for potential bite disorders, and lymph nodes in the area will be palpated to screen for any abnormalities. A full intra-oral exam and oral cancer screening will be performed by checking soft tissues in the mouth. Dental diseases such as cavities, structural problems with the teeth, and existing dental work will be assessed during the hard tissue exam. Dr. Alexander will perform a periodontal examination to evaluate the relative health of the gum tissues and supporting bone structure.
Information gathered at the new patient exam will be used to provide each patient with a customized treatment plan unique to their dental needs. Most patients will be able to have a dental cleaning after their new patient exam with Dr. Alexander. Some patients may need a more comprehensive cleaning if periodontal disease is identified at their new patient exam. In this case, a second appointment will be needed for the periodontal therapy (deep cleaning). New patient exams typically take about 1 hour, as do routine cleanings. We ask that our new patients allot two hours for their new patient visit to our office.
We gladly accept cash, check, money order, all major credit cards and Care Credit for extended payments with no interest for 1 year.
Our office is happy to assist in filing claims for patients with dental insurance.
Dental insurance is an agreement between you, as the patient, and the insurance company. We are not contracted with any specific insurance companies, so as to provide all of our patients with the best care they deserve. Each individual insurance plan is different, and our office is happy to work with you in order to estimate service costs and help maximize your benefits.
