What should I expect at my first visit at Stanford Dental?
Dr. James Stanford and his team truly value our patients and the relationships we build with them. We know that establishing trust between patient and dentist is an essential part of dentistry.
For our new patients, we offer a full-interview process and tour of the office. During your specialized 90-minute new patient appointment, you will get a full set of digital x-rays and a VELscope oral cancer screening. Dr. Stanford will also examine each tooth using Diagnodent laser cavity detection and his two-times magnification loupes. This allows him to assess your current level of health and determine if any additional treatment is needed.
He will also use his intraoral camera to take full color pictures of your mouth and teeth and assess your gums to determine what type of cleaning you will need when you return. When you come back for your second appointment, you will get a cleaning that is specific for your needs as well as a private consultation with Dr. Stanford. Together, you will review each x-ray and picture taken, and he will help you to better understand your dental needs.
Most patients are happily surprised by the amount of time and attention Dr. Stanford gives them as they haven’t experienced this level of service before!
