First Visit & New Patient Exam
Experienced, Knowledgeable Dental Care
Dr. Warren and his friendly staff will provide you with caring, efficient treatment and go out of their way to make you comfortable and help you with any needs or concerns you may have.
Your first visit will include a thorough exam of your mouth, gums and teeth. We will use the latest diagnostic technology, including digital and panoramic X-rays and a CT scan if necessary, to perform an in-depth evaluation of the condition of your mouth and jaw. We will listen to your concerns, discuss your treatment goals and review your general health history and dental history with you.
Once the diagnostics are completed, Dr. Warren will go over his findings with you in detail. He will present you with all the different treatment options available and answer all of your questions. Dr. Warren has a personable, friendly chairside manner and you will find him easy to talk to.
Reliable, friendly care
Dr. Warren is known for his honesty, trustworthiness and open communication with patients. He will advise you about your treatment in a straightforward manner and will never push procedures on you. You can count on him to provide you with an accurate, straightforward diagnosis and to let you know what can be done to accomplish your treatment goals.
Our staff are warm and friendly and share Dr. Warren’s philosophy of treating you the way they would want to be treated. We will do our best to make your visits to our office as pleasant as possible.
New Patient Exam
As part of your New Patient Exam, you can expect the following:
Getting to know you and your dental goals
When you arrive in our office, you will be greeted by our friendly staff and taken to a comfortable treatment room where we will review your health history with you and perform thorough diagnostics to determine the current state of your dental health.
In order to get a detailed view of each tooth, we will take a full set of digital X-rays. Digital X-rays emit about 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays and are available for immediate viewing.
A panoramic X-ray will be taken, which gives Dr. Warren a full overview of your entire mouth and teeth.
3D CT scan
In certain cases, Dr. Warren will use our state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner to obtain a three-dimensional view of your entire mouth, teeth, jaws and head. 3D scans provide detailed information that is very valuable in certain situations, such as for the diagnosis of pain or discomfort or for the planning for dental implant treatment.
Dr. Warren will then perform a thorough examination of your mouth, gums and teeth, including charting any existing dental work and checking for tooth stability. If there is any suspicion of gum disease, Dr. Warren will probe your gum pockets to rule out any issues with your gums.
Oral cancer screening
Dr. Warren performs an oral cancer screening on all new patients. He will do a visual and manual examination for any warning signs. Although oral cancer is not very common, oral cancer screening is an important preventative measure and can help detect potential problems before they become serious.
Consultation and treatment options
Dr. Warren will go over the results of your exam with you. He will take the time to discuss your treatment options and answer all of your questions, and he will help you decide on a treatment plan that fits with your budget.
