Your First Dental Visit
Your First Dental Visit
Whether you are interested in cosmetic smile consultation or a general exam and checkup, we offer a cosmetic dental consultation to all new patients. During the consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic needs for creating the smile you were always dreaming of. Otherwise for general dental patients, at your first visit, all areas of your mouth will be thoroughly evaluated. This process will include a detailed examination of the teeth, soft tissue, supporting structure alignment, bite and more.
A complete set of x-rays may be needed along with bone scan and dental photos. All the information that we obtain will be carefully evaluated so that we may accurately assess your dental needs.

What To Expect At Your First Dental Visit
At our office, we believe in the highest quality care possible and it starts with collecting all the data.
You will be stopping at different stations for data collection.
CT scan studio
Depending on your dental history, your dentist may recommend the taking of a series of digital images or X-rays to get a better look at your entire mouth. X-rays allow your dentist to see things that can’t be seen by the naked eye, and they help your dentist conduct a comprehensive exam.
We pick our equipment very meticulously to ensure we are most updated with technology. Safety is our highest concern that’s why we use state-of-the-art low radiation digital x-ray.
If you have taken digital x-rays less than 6 months ago, you can obtain a copy the digital x-rays that might be useful to use and might prevent the need for new x-rays but if you have x-rays that are more than 6 months old, it might not be diagnostic and we will need to obtain new x-rays.
It’s no secret that the more anatomical information available, the better a dentist is able to diagnose and plan. Three-dimensional radiography captures information that was not visible with regular x-ray.
High-quality images, low-dose options, and fully featured treatment-planning software continue to provide enhanced features for highly effective planning in providing the best in patient care.
This will help our dentist to evaluate your bone and your sinuses. Your dentist can check for bone fractures, cysts, tumors, lesions, and sinus issues. It is an absolute requirement to use a CT scan for implants and many more dental procedures.
Dental Photo Shoot
We believe cosmetic dentistry goes hand in hand with facial aesthetics. Your teeth should be complementing your face. Small details and proportions have significant importance. Each patient will get a sequence of facial and dental photographs taken in order to evaluate your smile and dentition. These photos help us make a better cosmetic treatment plan.
Sitting down and seeing the big picture
You’ll sit down with Dr. Borzoo to chat about your dental treatment, medical history, and why you’ve come to see the dentist. Next, is a thorough oral exam to help diagnose any oral health issues and develop a comprehensive treatment plan that’s right for you. This is important, because here at Smile Atelier we believe in seeing the full picture so you can have the healthy mouth you deserve.
We believe our patients need to get proper education and need to get the exact rationale behind each and every dental treatment. That is why sufficient explanations are given to all patients in order to maximize the dental treatment comprehension.
Your mouth is our mission. That means providing you comprehensive oral care – taking care of the problems that are bothering you today and preventing small issues from getting bigger and more expensive. It means making sure your dentures fit right. It means consistently affordable prices, no hidden fees, and no surprises. It even means giving you free copies of your X-rays if you want a second opinion.
“Comprehensive care”: Your dentist will examine your entire mouth, recommend a dental treatment plan with options for long-lasting oral health, and work with you to determine which treatments are best, so your mouth is on its way to healthy.
Consultation with treatment Coordinator
After the dentist finishes your exam, our treatment Coordinator will sit down with you. The goal is to answer any questions or concerns you might have, like how dental insurance works, or what sort of payment options are going to work for you. Our goal is always patient peace of mind.
After your first visit, we’ll provide you with a copy of your dental treatment plan to take home, including the price quote for recommended treatments, and the date for your follow-up appointment. Here’s a reassuring promise: no surprises. If you have any questions or if there is anything you don’t understand, we’re here to help.
Dr. Borzoo and the rest of the Smile Atelier team look forward to giving you a Million Dollar Smile.
