Your First Visit
Dr. Hakim will perform a complete oral and facial examination and discuss any treatment you may need or any dental concerns you may have. The examination can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even oral cancer. Teeth cleaning may be performed during your first visit, or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. Your first appointment will take between 1 to 1.5 hours.
Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
At the end of your first visit your treatment plan, options, and the priorities will be discussed with you.
What to Bring
To make your visit as efficient as possible, there are a few things you could bring with you.
If you’ve had dental x-rays in the last six months, please bring them to your first appointment or email them to us. If you don’t have them, get ready to bite down on the x-ray sensor.
