At Ferris Lane Dental in Barrie, our goal is to understand your concerns and determine your dental needs in order to create a personalized treatment plan. Our dentists will also take this time to learn more about what you would like out of your dental appointments, as well as your own goals.
What to expect at your first dental appointment:
We'll review three key areas that in combination will give us a clear picture of your oral health and your needs.
- Your Dental Care History: We'll review your dental and medical care history, as well as any concerns you currently have about your oral health.
- Complete Oral Exam: We'll perform a complete oral exam, including X-rays to help us assess the overall health of your smile.
- Full Oral Health Plan: We'll prepare recommendations for your total oral health, which will include full oral maintenance, as well as the potential of additional dentistry services that we agree upon.
