Comprehensive Dental Exam – An Oral Health Review

A comprehensive oral and periodontal examination.

comprehensive oral exam

Your first visit at Jason J. Augustine D.D.S., M.S., P.C. will be a comprehensive oral exam that will help us determine the state of your oral health. Dr. Augustine and his staff will go over the details of your dental and medical history. Your exam will include an assessment of the gums, the teeth, and the bite.  We will then create a problem list that will determine the accurate diagnosis and in turn develop your specific treatment needs.  An oral cancer screening is also a part of the comprehensive exam to detect early stages of any potential problems.  We will take digital x-rays and possibly recommend a CT scan if additional information is needed.

After the thorough evaluation, Dr. Augustine will recommend the best course of action. You will meet with our treatment coordinator to discuss the details of your case. We will work with your insurance company (if applicable) to ensure all available benefits are applied and we will discuss payment options at this time. We strive to make this initial appointment simple and straightforward. We are glad you have taken the first step towards better periodontal health!
