Acknowledging the bravery it takes for some individuals to step into a dental clinic, we extend our warmest congratulations and support as you navigate towards the most informed choice for your distinct needs. Your initial appointment at Metro West Orthodontics & Periodontics is centered around building a getting to know you and building trust.

Before we welcome you for your introductory visit, please share your general dentist’s name along with your dental insurance details. Our team will work to gather your dental X-rays and insurance information in advance of your visit. However, should we encounter any challenges in procuring your latest X-rays from your general dentist, we might request you to undergo X-ray imaging on-site to ensure an accurate diagnosis.

Your first appointment will involve a discussion of your medical and dental history and your oral health needs and goals. A member of our welcoming team will capture photographs of your face and inside your mouth to enhance your understanding of your oral health status. Our periodontists will then conduct thorough examinations both outside and inside your mouth, including cancer screenings, and assess the condition of your tissues and gum probing.

Following a comprehensive evaluation, our board-certified periodontists will discuss the available treatment pathways with you, outlining the risks, benefits and the maintenance each option entails. Our approach to your care goes beyond immediate treatment; we emphasize the importance of ongoing care and home maintenance as crucial components for sustained oral wellness.

By the conclusion of your initial visit, you will possess a deeper insight into your oral health condition and the treatment alternatives available. It is our hope that this knowledge equips you to make a decision that best aligns with your personal health goals.
