Orange County, Santa Ana CA
Initial Dentist Appointment
Your initial appointment will usually consist of:
- Reviewing your medical and dental history
- Reviewing your short term and long term health goals
- A comprehensive examination of your mouth (teeth, gums and soft tissues)
- Oral Cancer & TMJ Exam
- Full Mouth Series of Digital Radiographs
- Intra-oral Photographs
- Cleaning and Polish of Teeth
Dr. Saleh spends a considerable amount of time reviewing the above findings to prepare a treatment plan that addresses your unique health needs and goals. This will be discussed with you at length at a second visit scheduled within one week of your first visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (example: diabetes, high blood pressure, heart murmurs, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
X-rays are very important for diagnostic purposes. If your previous dentist has taken x-rays in the last six months, please request that they email them to our office. Our email address is [email protected]. If the x-rays are not of diagnostic quality or if additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
