Evaluation of existing teeth, previous restorations, and gum health
Periodontal charting to determine gum and bone health

Coordination of any dental benefits.
Sometimes a dental cleaning can be provided at the first appointment if there is available time within the hygienists' schedule, if the patient doesn’t show signs of gum disease and/or if the patient has minimal plaque/tartar accumulation.
If a patient requires a more extensive type of cleaning than time allows, an alternative treatment date is scheduled.
A treatment plan is established outlining necessary care with the number of appointments necessary, as well as, financial options to cover any out-of-pocket investment. If dental insurance is being utilized, benefits will be incorporated and discussed with a patient care coordinator. If the treatment plan is extensive, sometimes it is necessary to send a predetermination to your insurance company for an accurate cost estimate.
