To begin your first visit one of our staff members will compile your necessary medical and dental history. Dr. Bauer and team will then thoroughly examine your teeth. This will include a check for decay, complete periodontal screening, an oral cancer examination. We will also complete X-rays of your teeth as needed, and complete a TMJ (temporomandibular joint or jaw joint) exam, bite analysis and orthodontic evaluation if necessary.

As our hygienists and our dentists move through these various procedures we will be discussing our findings with you. At the completion of the appointment, Dr. Bauer will review your dental findings with you. Together we will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and wishes.

It is our objective to give you the information that you need so you can make objective decisions on the type and scope of dental care you desire.
