A MESSAGE ABOUT COVID-19
Danvers Dental Care continues to be committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff members. We are closely monitoring developments and information pertaining to the emergence of COVID-19, commonly referred to as “coronavirus.”
As a dental healthcare provider, we always have, and will continue to, disinfect, and sanitize our offices based on the highest level of infection control for all communicable diseases, including COVID-19. We have removed shared items, such as pens and magazines from our reception area and ensuring that hand sanitizer is readily available. We have asked patients and staff members to avoid coming to our office if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms. We will continue to ensure that those who visit and work in our office are healthy.
We will be vigilant as additional information becomes available. We value you and your safety and wish you continued good health.
Your First Visit
Our practice is focused on prevention and health. We believe that excellence in dentistry begins with a detailed evaluation of our patient. At your first visit to our practice you will have a Comprehensive Oral Evaluation by one of our dentists. This is the first step in determining your individual and personal dental needs.
This careful diagnosis and treatment planning session will include:
Review of your medical and dental history
Periodontal (gums) evaluation
Examination of current fillings and dental appliances
Oral cancer screening
Guided tour of your mouth with an intra-oral digital camera
Digital radiographs (x-rays), models, and photographs
All findings will be discussed with you at this visit and a baseline of your oral health will be established. We recognize that no two patients are alike and that your treatment plan should reflect your wants and needs. Different options will be discussed and through co-diagnosis, your personal treatment plan will be established. We encourage our patients to actively participate in the treatment planning process so that everyone may achieve their own desired level of dental health.
We can assure you that your Comprehensive Oral Evaluation will be much more detailed than a “quick check”. Many of our patients report that their new patient visit was the most thorough dental appointment they have ever experienced!
