Take the First Step to a Healthier Smile
Your first examination appointment will be very easy and simple. There is no treatment done that day (unless requested and appropriate). If the thought of an exam on the first day is terrifying, realize you are one of many who feel the same. In these cases the first day will simply consist of a conversation about your dental needs, medical history, and the option of receiving the exam under sedation.
The exam consists of a discussion of your medical and dental histories, radiographic (xray) examination of the teeth and bone, identification of your main concerns, and a clinical examination of soft (cheek, lip, tongue) and hard (teeth) tissues
The exam will determine whether your dental needs are simple or more complex. If simple, your options will be presented that day and a cleaning can be scheduled. If complex, Dr. Paul will gather the pertinent data and have you return for a consultation. This will allow adequate time to present you with your options and develop a thorough plan to regain your dental health.

Emergencies are Welcome
Sometimes life does not go as planned. Much like cars, teeth do not typically start 'acting up' at convenient times. Even if you have never seen us before, do not hesitate to call if you are having an emergency (visible swelling, severe pain that is waking you up at night, bleeding, missing front teeth). You may have to be a little patient with us, but we will see you that day.
We offer many different ways to help fit your desired treatment into your budget.

The thing that I underestimated the most was how much confidence my new smile would bring me. The pain was very minimal.
Very professional and friendly.
The office moral was very open and loving. They treated myself and each other very professionally.
I only remember having an itchy nose at one point, then I was awake and the procedures were complete- no memory of pain or discomfort at all.
