My First Appointment

At your first appointment, you will meet one of the dentists and assistants who will complete: your medical history, x-rays, and comprehensive dental exam

What is a comprehensive dental exam?

This is similar to a new patient exam when you are meeting a dentist for the very first time. At the dental clinic, a dentist will assess all your tissues and teeth. At this appointment, a treatment plan will be determined. The dentist will also communicate with your oncologist. Sometimes, but not always, treatment is completed at the first appointment.
