WELCOME

We appreciate the opportunity to have you as our patient!  Your first visit will be catered to your specific needs. Typically, we reserve about an hour for you to meet with the dentist, discuss your goals, and receive a comprehensive exam. Your exam may include an oral cancer screening, digital X-rays, and intraoral photos. The dentist will explain their findings and make recommendations for treatment. Your cleaning will be performed at this visit, or at a subsequent visit, depending on your needs.  We look forward to seeing you in our office!  Please call us for an appointment at (903)839-6069
