First Visit & New Patient Exam
Get one of the most comprehensive dental exams you’ve ever had
Here at Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio we go out of our way to make sure our patients receive comprehensive care from the very start. We begin with a pre-visit phone call where we will introduce ourselves to you and discover what your dental interests and concerns are. We like to establish a two-way dialog early on because we believe communication is key to patient satisfaction.
When you arrive at Cosmetic Dentistry of San Antonio you’ll be welcomed with a kind word and a friendly smile. You’ll get a tour of our office so you can check out our ultramodern dental facilities and meet Dr. Edward Camacho and his well-trained staff.
Dr. Camacho has more than three decades of experience beautifying smiles. He stays current on the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry by regularly attending professional association meetings and by taking on-going continuing education courses.
We’ll start your visit with a very comprehensive examination
Our experienced hygienists will start the process by conducting a gum evaluation. This includes a careful periodontal probing, which is a check for gum disease. Next, Dr. Camacho will perform an extremely thorough examination. Most patients comment that it’s the most thorough exam they have ever experienced in their lives.
Dr. Camacho’s goal is to restore your smile to optimum health and beauty. His focus is on your satisfaction. He’ll listen to your concerns, explain his examination procedures, answer your questions and do whatever he can to put you at ease during your exam and consultation.
The examination process
You will receive a full set of low-dose digital X-rays, including panoramic ones. We will also use our state-of-the-art intraoral camera to take 72 (yes, seventy-two) photos of your smile, which includes three shots of every tooth, so that Dr. Camacho can conduct a “tooth-by-tooth” evaluation.
During this visit, Dr. Camacho will analyze the condition of your teeth and study your current bite pattern to see if there’s any damage currently being done by your bite. He will also use his high-tech VELscope to check and see if you have any oral abnormalities, like cancer. Additionally you will receive a jaw function evaluation to find out if you have any TMJ issues.
Lastly, Dr. Camacho will review your X-rays with you so that you have a complete picture of the state of your current oral health.
Exploring your smile’s future
The last stage of your New Patient Exam is concerns smile enhancement. Using his leading-edge SNAP! Cosmetic Imaging Dr. Camacho will use digital photography to show you what your smile could look like with a cosmetic makeover.
After the exam is complete Dr. Camacho will give you a written report of findings, along with a personalized treatment plan customized to your needs, which he will then review with you in detail so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health.
