Your First Dental Visit
Your comprehensive exam will last approximately 90 minutes. Initially, you will be invited to discuss with Dr. Cohen your personal desires and any current problems regarding esthetics and function. After your consultation, Dr. Cohen will proceed with the following steps:
- X-rays to check for decay
- TMJ exam
- Oral Cancer Exam
- Digital photos to evaluate smile, teeth and gums
- Check all restorations for breakage, decay and cracks
- Periodontal Exam to check gums, mobile teeth and bone loss
- Check evenness of your bite to make sure teeth are hitting properly and evenly
- Intraoral photos of existing fillings and decay
Following the exam, Dr. Cohen will review and explain his findings. You will then have the opportunity to discuss treatment options that best fits your lifestyle and budget.

CareCredit Financing Available
You normally expect to pay for dental care in a single lump sum, but we understand that this isn’t always a feasible option. CareCredit can make paying for your visit less stressful by dividing the cost into several monthly payments. They offer different plans to accommodate various budgets, and there’s little to no interest to concern yourself with. Our team can tell you more about this financing option and walk you through the application process.
