Your First Visit To Our New Bern Dentist Office
If you are a new patient of Dr. Hoard, your first visit will be a general examination and consultation. This comprehensive evaluation may include:
- Dental x-rays & Photographs
- Periodontal screening
- Dental caries screening
- Cancer Screening
- Occlusal analysis to examine the position of the bite
Dr. Hoard will spend time with you to discuss your dental concerns and goals. When we perform an oral exam, we aren’t just looking at your teeth, we are examining the bite relationship, the health of the gums, the structure of the teeth and looking for hidden signs of stress and instability.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution in dentistry. Dr. Hoard will present you with all your options and help you choose the treatment that will deliver you with the best results that are long lasting, comfortable and natural-looking.
