Will I get a "cleaning" at my first appointment?
Depending on what we need to discuss, sometimes we cannot complete a cleaning at the same time. We try our best but may have to bring you back. It is our goal to provide every patient a comprehensive treatment plan. We take our time to explain everything to our patients and make sure they understand the recommendations. We take pictures to show the patients what things look like. We never rush the time and want to make sure you are fully aware of the treatment proposed.
Are you up to date with new technology?
Yes. I think you know the answer to this.
