Welcome New Patients
What will happen at my first visit?
During your first visit, Dr Hunt will complete a thorough evaluation of your periodontal condition. He will obtain a complete in-depth dental and medical health history, a dental and gum examination and review your dental x-rays. He will assess your bite, any loose teeth, and your jaw for bone loss. He will then educate you on your condition and provide you with all your options for treatment. Dr Hunt will work closely with you to decide on treatment that is clinically appropriate yet takes into consideration your personal needs. The first step of treatment may start during this visit. Dr Hunt strongly believes in collaborating fully with other dentists involved in your care to help you achieve overall dental health and well-being.

Will I need x-rays?
We will need current x-rays in order to see the extent of periodontal disease below the gum line that is not otherwise visible. If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, we will request that they be forwarded to us. During the initial exam, if Dr Hunt needs more information about specific areas of concern, he may ask that selective x-rays be taken to assist him with his diagnosis and treatment planning.
