The Dental Care Center

I am a new patient. Will a cleaning be done at the time of my exam?

If you're a new patient and want your dental cleaning performed along with your first exam, please let our staff know when you call to schedule your appointment.

We do our best to accommodate all requests; however, please note that our doctors and hygienists keep separate schedules that may not always coincide with your requested appointment time.

Another variable is what we find when we evaluate your gum health. If you have gum disease or periodontitis, we may need to schedule a longer hygiene appointment to provide the focused treatment you need.

Your First Dental Exam in Van Nuys

If you have a regular cleaning, our hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup, brush and floss your teeth, and polish your teeth to leave you with a fresh, clean smile.

Along with your teeth cleaning, the services you can typically expect at your first dental visit include:

  • Checking and charting the condition of each tooth
  • Periodontal charting to assess your gum health and check for signs of disease 
  • Digital x-rays to evaluate your oral health and look for underlying issues 
  • Oral cancer screening to detect abnormalities

Each patient is different and has unique oral health needs and smile goals. If you need a follow-up appointment for further treatment, we'll schedule it at that time.
