are always welcome
In order to provide you with the best possible care, the dentist, hygienists and assistants need to know of any health conditions as well as current medications. This way we can be certain that any treatments we recommend are truly in your best interest, and your health will not be put at risk. Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete a dental and health history.
It is often helpful to have access to your most recent X-rays and dental history. We are happy to contact your former dentist on your behalf to request those. In some cases, a written release is required and can be provided by PQB Dental Clinic.
As a courtesy, we accept assignment of payment from your insurer, with very few exceptions. We do our best to estimate limits set by your insurer and we are happy to send pre authorizations at your request.
Your First Cleaning
On your first visit, a hygienist will perform a new patient exam. This appointment will be longer than subsequent appointments as it includes:
- Creation of a map of your mouth including positioning, state of previous dental work, and your gum health
- Review of your health history
- Digital X-rays
- Head/neck Exam
- Oral cancer screening
- Oral exam by Dr. Rogers
- Development of strategies to obtain your optimal oral health
