At Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry, we want your first visit to be a breeze.
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted and helped in a timely manner. We will start by asking you to complete new patient forms, consisting of a medical and dental history. Don’t expect to wait—Dr. Farber will usually be ready for you immediately.
For a dental exam, Dr. Farber will listen to any concerns you have about your oral health or your smile. The examination will include:
- Panographic or full-mouth digital x-rays, depending on your needs
- A periodontal examination to assess your gum health
- A discussion of the status of your overall oral health, any issues, and an explanation of your treatment options
You may notice that our office has made an effort to eliminate the need for paper charts and x-ray film by using digital photo documentation and filing. By doing so, we can easily organize our patients’ records and their progress, while being environmentally conscious.
If there is time, we’ll go ahead and clean your teeth, or if your treatment needs are minor, we may even do some of your treatment. Expect to be here about 45 minutes for this first appointment.
When we clean your teeth, we use Airflow Therapy, with the high-tech device by Hu-Friedy created for this purpose. Besides helping Dr. Farber give you a very thorough cleaning, it is very quick.
If you’re a new patient and not ready to commit to a paid examination, or just want to meet Dr. Farber or ask her some initial questions, we’ll be happy to see you for a complimentary consultation. Just call and ask, or mention it on the online scheduling form.
Dr. Farber and her team use the latest technological advancements in the dental industry, such as the iTero intraoral scanner, Panorex digital x-rays, the Denta-Pen for comfortable delivery of local anesthetic, and the Piezotome CUBE. We also make sure that you are relaxed and at ease during your entire treatment process, by helping you understand each step and by providing sedation methods when requested or necessary.
