If you are searching for a general dentist in Midtown NYC, contact a member of our team to arrange your initial exam. At your first appointment, we establish a relationship and a baseline of your oral health in which to build your treatment plan and re-care schedule.
What to bring to your first dental visit:
- Medical history and list of medications
- Insurance information
- Any questions or concerns you may have
Once we get the paperwork and medical history taken care of, a member of our team will escort you to your private treatment room, where you will have your exam with Dr. Philips. A comprehensive oral exam consists of:
- Full exam of the teeth, gums, jaw, and bite
- Digital photos and x-rays
- Intraoral pictures of any conditions
- Consultation to discover your goals for your smile
- Cosmetic consultation
- Oral cancer screening
- Laser cavity detection
At your first appointment, you can also meet one of our gentle and skilled dental hygienists who will expertly remove tartar from the teeth and polish them to a shine. If it has been a while since your last dental cleaning, we may need to see you for a follow-up visit.
Dr. Philips will sit down with you and discuss anything that requires professional attention such as decay, cavities, gum disease, cracked or fractured teeth, worn down restorations, or the need for a nightguard to protect your smile.
Your treatment is always up to you. Dr. Philips sees her role as your educator and oral health partner, helping you achieve optimum oral health that supports the health of your entire body, including your heart.
