New Patient Exam

Dental Exam

Whether it’s called a clinical exam, a new patient exam or a routine checkup, a dental examination is a crucial part of your oral health care. It allows your general dentist to take inventory of your overall oral health and identify any potential problems that should be addressed.

  1. During the exam the general dentist will visually examine your face and neck for abnormalities, such as lumps, bumps or swelling.
  2. Next the general dentist will check inside your mouth, looking for any abnormalities in the soft tissue, such as discolorations or ulcers on your lips, gums, tongue, palate and cheeks. Your general dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening and will check your bite and your jaw joint for any problems.
  3. Next your general dentist will check your gums and jawbone for any signs of gingivitis, gum disease and bone disease, as they provide support for all of your teeth.
  4. Finally the general dentist will check your teeth for cavities and other problems, looking specifically at any areas where you may have symptoms or concerns.

Services are performed by a general dentist.


Because many potential problems cannot be diagnosed with the naked eye our general dentists employ X-rays to get a more accurate look at what is really going on inside your mouth and below your teeth and gums. They also allow us to check for bone loss and determine the severity of any gum disease that is present. Taking X-rays during your initial visit also provides a benchmark for us to compare against during future visits.
