Smile Dentistry Dental Offices
At Smile Dentistry, it’s our goal to create relationships with our patients that last a lifetime. For us, that means providing the highest quality dental care available with a caring and personal touch. We utilize state-of-the-art technology in a relaxed and comfortable environment to make sure your visit is as easy and painless as possible, all while getting the best results possible.
Getting to know you and your history is an essential first step. That’s why we begin by having you fill out a comprehensive medical and dental history. You can either download the Patient Questionnaire ahead of time, fill it out and bring it with you or just take care of it in the office when you arrive for you appointment. That’ll give us a solid foundation for reviewing your overall health, which will help up determine the proper course of action.
Once the paperwork is out of the way, we’ll begin your exam. A member of our team will begin by taking digital x-rays and intra-oral photos. We then evaluate your gums to check for gingivitis or other periodontal diseases (very important!), a process which includes an oral cancer screening using a revolutionary tool called Vizilite®. Once that’s done, Dr. Bacon will perform a complete oral exam and work with you to build a personalized oral health plan. The entire process typically lasts about 75 minutes. You’ll leave with a thorough understanding of your current dental health, what the next steps are and what they’re going to accomplish.
