Personal, affordable, proactive dental care. It’s the Universal Smiles way!
Your comprehensive first visit will include a discussion with Dr. Griffin about your health, oral health, and concerns.
During your exam, we’ll capture full-mouth X-rays and intraoral photographs. Dr. Griffin will examine your teeth, gums, jaw joints, and occlusion (how upper and lower teeth fit together). If you have cosmetic concerns, let the dentist know during your exam. Dr. Griffin will review his findings with you using the X-rays and intraoral images. Then, together, the best course of action will be determined for now and in the future.
After your exam, you may have a dental cleaning. Information about your oral health and gum tissue will be recorded. Instruction on homecare will be provided showing you effective ways to brush and floss your teeth. If you have questions about which products to use at home, please ask. Our goal is your long-term oral health and a smile that reflects a high quality of life.
