Your First Visit At Chattanooga Dental Studio
We are 100% committed to making your visit to our office comfortable and as easy as possible.
On your visit, you can expect:
A warm welcome from our friendly front office team
Complimentary beverages in the reception area
An introductory conversation, where we will listen to your needs, concerns and expectations
A comprehensive dental exam, including an oral cancer screening and full mouth examination of your teeth and gums
Necessary low radiation digital X-Rays
A standard dental cleaning (assuming that no Periodontal or major dental issues are present)
After the checkup is complete, the doctor will meet with you to discuss your X-Rays and recommend a treatment plan to improve your overall dental health. If additional treatment is required, you will be presented with a treatment plan and an estimate. We’ll schedule your next appointment for preventive care or for a respective procedure from your treatment plan.
