Your first visit
Your first visit to Portland Family Dentistry is the foundation of the long-term treatment plan that we will create to maintain and improve your oral health.
During your visit, our team will assess the current state of your oral health. We do this through three careful steps.
One of our skilled dental staff will review your intake forms and discuss your medical history with you so we have a thorough understanding of your medical history, including previous surgeries or dental procedures you’ve undergone, medications you are currently taking, and medical conditions you may have. Your patient history informs us on the unique care that you’ll need to develop the best oral health treatment plan possible.
During your first appointment, Dr. Agee will also take a full set of x-rays. X-rays provide Dr. Agee with information about the health of your bones, the ability to see any un-erupted teeth, tooth root formation, previous dental work, as well as dental decay. X-rays allow our team of dental professionals to gain a better understanding of the current state of your oral health today, as well as get a picture of its past!
Dr. Agee will complete a comprehensive examination of your teeth and oral tissues, including intra oral photos, a complete head and neck exam, oral cancer screening, TMJ evaluation, periodontal examination, and complete dental examination. With all these different angles on the state of your oral health, we will have the complete picture that allows us to best serve you and your unique needs.
At the completion of your first visit, Dr. Agee will create a treatment plan for providing optimal dental health, which includes regular cleaning with one of our fantastic hygienists. Each individual has different needs, and those needs are not known until after we have had a chance to do a thorough examination. For this reason, we generally do not schedule new patients for their cleaning appointment in conjunction with their new patient exam. Our friendly and helpful staff will keep you informed of your visit’s outcome and help you to schedule another appointment if necessary.
