Hello! Thank you for visiting our website. New patients and emergencies are always welcome! Our team will get you appointed as soon as possible!
A New Patient visit consists of a comprehensive exam and x-rays. A dental prophylaxis (cleaning) may also be given if a patient’s gum health is good. If a patient’s gum health is not good and gum disease may be present, no cleanings will be done at the first visit. If it has been many years since a patient’s last comprehensive exam, no cleaning will be scheduled for the first visit.
Dental x-rays need to be taken for a complete diagnosis. Without x-rays, Dr Wieczorek cannot give a full evaluation of a patient’s dental health. If a previous dentist has a recent Full Mouth Series (FMX) or Panorex and it was taken within the past year, Dr Wieczorek may be able to utilize those x-rays if our office obtains them before the first visit. Different kinds of x-rays are taken depending on a patient’s age and amount of teeth present.
During the regular work week, our practice tries to see all emergencies the same day the patient calls. This depends on what time the patient has called our office and how busy the schedule is that day. If a patient calls early in the day, the chances of being seen that day are great. If a patient calls late in the day, they may have to be scheduled for the following day. Please call as soon as possible to get scheduled as soon as possible.
