We understand that for some, stepping into a dental office can be a daunting task, and we are here to celebrate your bravery and assist you in making the most informed decision for your unique oral health needs. The primary aim of your initial appointment at Metro West Orthodontics & Periodontics is to help us get to know each other and to help you feel at ease in our practice.

Before your initial appointment, kindly provide us with your general dentist’s name and your dental insurance details. Our team will strive to gather your dental X-rays and insurance information before you arrive. However, if we are unable to procure your recent X-rays from your general dentist, you might need to undergo X-ray imaging during your visit to ensure accurate diagnosis.

Your first visit involves a comprehensive evaluation of your medical and dental histories, alongside an assessment of your dental desires and requirements. A welcoming assistant will capture facial and intraoral photographs to enhance your understanding of your oral health status. Our board-certified periodontists will conduct thorough extraoral and intraoral examinations, including cancer screenings and evaluations of your gum tissue health.

Following a thorough examination, Dr. Takanari Miyamoto or Dr. Melissa Lang will discuss various treatment options with you, outlining the advantages and risks associated with each, as well as the maintenance they necessitate.

Our approach extends beyond immediate treatments to encompass future care requirements to ensure sustained optimal oral health. The emphasis is on both professional care and the importance of your personal oral hygiene and follow-up routines.

Upon concluding your first visit, you will possess a deeper insight into your oral health status and available treatment paths. It is our hope that this visit empowers you to choose a course of action that aligns with your needs.
