Your First Visit To Smile Savers Dentistry
Thank you for coming to Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia, Maryland for your dental needs! We value your trust in us and in return, we are committed to providing you with a comfortable environment in which you will receive consistent excellence of care during every visit.
Comprehensive Dental Exam
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Dr. Stewart will perform a thorough oral exam. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth. X-rays will usually be taken to allow Dr. Stewart to detect subtle signs of tooth decay, gum infections or other problems, as well as any signs of oral cancer. These diagnostic records will enable Dr. Stewart to provide you with a thorough understanding of any existing dental problems and his proposed treatment.
During your visit we encourage you to ask questions. It’s your health and you are in charge. Our job is to provide you with the understanding and education to help you make informed decisions.
At Smile Savers Dentistry, we believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments and any symptoms present that may require treatment from a specialist. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership with one common goal – keeping your smile beautiful and your teeth, gums and jaw joints healthy!
