During your first appointment you will have a series of routine X-rays taken that check for cavities. If you have recent X-rays, they can be emailed to our clinic upon your request. If you have any specific concerns, such as tooth pain, broken or missing teeth, or wisdom teeth troubles, further X-rays will be taken to visualize these areas of concern. Dr. Horricks or Dr. Lafleur will then do a visual examination of your mouth and teeth, and discuss his findings with you along with possible options for treatment. In most cases, only dental hygiene (cleaning) will be provided on the day of the first appointment. When you are finished with the dentist, at your request the front desk team will provide you with an estimate for the treatment decided upon, and will book your next appointment for the start of treatment.
