What can I expect at my first dental exam?

Our dentist likes to use your first visit to our Albuquerque dental office to spend some time getting to know each other. It’s crucial to us that you feel you can trust us to be honest and transparent with all our interactions, and it starts with your first visit to Blue Sky Dental.  

What to Expect during Your First Dental Exam 

The purpose of your first exam is for us to learn about your dental needs and how we can help you. You will typically receive a full mouth series of x-rays, a panoramic x-ray, select intra-oral photos, and a full comprehensive exam with our dentist.

Throughout this process, we encourage you to ask questions. We want you to feel fully informed about your dental needs, and your questions also help us determine what your oral health priorities are.

Complimentary 3-D Digital Dental Scan

Each new patient examination also includes a complimentary digital scan, which produces a 3-D digital model of your teeth. This digital model not only allows enhanced visualization and education but can also detect changes in tooth wear and gum recession over time.

A Teeth Cleaning with Our Hygienist

In many cases, we will also provide a teeth cleaning with one of our skilled dental hygienists. The exception would be if we find that you have gum disease; in this case, we would schedule a separate in-depth dental cleaning so that we have sufficient time to treat you properly. 

Your Personalized Dental Treatment Plan

At the end of your appointment, Dr. Woods will discuss his findings with you and explain any potential areas of concern. You and he will work together to discuss the needed treatment and develop a plan for your future dental care.

If your first visit is a dental emergency, our dentist in Albuquerque will focus on your immediate concern. We will then schedule an appointment for a later date when we have plenty of time to devote to you and conduct a thorough examination.
