Get The Care You Deserve Right From The Start
At your very first appointment with us, you’ll be able to see a hygienist and Dr. Stuckey for a dental cleaning and exam. During this time, we will:
- Remove all traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth.
- Polish your enamel until it shines, offering you a service that’s both aesthetically pleasing and helpful for keeping bacteria away.
- Inspect your smile for signs of dental damage like cavities, weak spots, gum disease, and oral cancer. We use intraoral cameras and digital X-rays to get the most detailed, accurate information in a noninvasive way.
- Discuss with you your dental history, concerns, and expectations so that we can put together a treatment plan just for you.
Communication is key in all relationships, including the one between dentist and patient. That’s why we use the VoiceWorks system. This hands-free method for keeping periodontal records allows us to keep our attention on you and teach you about what’s going on in your mouth.
At our office, you can know what we’re doing, understand what needs to be done, and weigh in on treatments you would like. Whether it’s restorative dentistry for damaged and missing teeth or cosmetic dentistry to enhance the beauty of your smile, we will partner with you on the smile solutions that will help you meet your goals.
If you have more questions about what to expect when you visit our office, such as payment options, or if you would like to schedule your first appointment, call the office of Patrick Stuckey, D.D.S. at 318-255-8648.
