WHAT TO EXPECT

As a new patient at Dr. Gordon, our goal is to put you on the path to total oral health so your mouth stays healthy. You can expect that every time you visit, we’ll put you at ease, respect your time and make you comfortable.

On your first visit, our hygienists or certified dental assistant will assess your gum and bone health and start you on a hygiene maintenance program. Every patient will be screened, as part of our total oral health exam, using a CariVu machine, a non-X-ray device that lets us have a pristine view of your mouth that is clearer than typical X-rays and gives us a baseline from which to evaluate your tooth health in the future. Dr. Gordon will give you an initial examination, and discuss any particular oral health concerns you may have.

If your first visit is a result of a dental emergency, you will be taken care of immediately and your discomfort addressed. We won’t just look at your single problem; we will take a health history and necessary X-rays and CariVu to make the most accurate diagnosis. If necessary, a treatment plan will be discussed.
