What happens at your first appointment with Dr. Deem?
We spend a lot of time with our patients to get to know their dental wants and needs, and to know them on a personal level. Our team prides itself in our unique approach to quality care. Many of our patients claim this sets us aside from other offices. We want to assure you that it is our goal to make your dental experience with us as positive as possible. Upon your initial visit you will fill out your registration forms so the office team can get to know you better, so it is a good idea to arrive a few minutes early. We will then take a series of x-rays, using the latest digital technology. X-rays are important and necessary to properly diagnose and treat all patients. Our doctor can determine your past dental history, if you have current cavities or infection, the amount of bone support, and check for bone fractures, cysts, or lesions.
After reviewing your x-rays, your dentist will perform a thorough oral exam, including a comprehensive periodontal (gum) exam, and oral cancer exam. We can then suggest a complete treatment plan that’s best for you. Once your treatment plan has been presented, our office manager will meet with you to answer any questions you may have, discuss payment options, and work with you on the best way to move forward with your treatment plan.
