Your First Visit
The first visit to Portland Family Dentistry is an important one: this is where we have the opportunity to become acquainted with your mouth for the first time, and we do this through three careful steps.
At your first appointment, our staff will interview you to get a comprehensive understanding of your medical history, including surgeries or dental procedures, medications you are currently taking, or medical conditions you may have. Your patient history informs us on the unique care that you need for your best oral health.
Radiographs, commonly referred to as x-rays, are another key to that first visit. A full set will be taken, allowing us to view the health of your bones, see un-erupted teeth, tooth root formation, previous dental work as well as dental decay. Radiographs are a way for our professionals to learn the state of your mouth today, as well as get a picture of its past!
Finally, 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 first visit, we will establish a plan for providing optimal dental health, which includes a 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.
Dr. Agee is passionate about preventative dental care. Regular checkups to our Portland dental office and daily dental hygiene are the two most important things you can do to maintain great dental health.
When you come in for your regular appointments, you can expect our team to:
- Clean and polish your teeth
- Examine your mouth for any sign of new decay, chipped, or damaged teeth
- Examine existing dental work, like fillings or crowns, to ensure it’s intact and functioning properly
- Perform a periodontal exam to check for signs of gum disease
- Perform an oral cancer screening
- Talk to you and learn about any new issues that have come up or concerns you may have.
Great restorative dental care is a key part of returning confidence to your smile. Dr. Agee restores your smile in a friendly, relaxing environment. Throughout each procedure, we strive to make sure our patients are comfortable and at ease. Dr. Agee and staff listen carefully to your feedback throughout the process to ensure that you’re getting the result you want!

Tooth Replacement Options
When the time between dental visits spans years, tooth loss can be the result. A missing tooth causes structural problems in your mouth, including changes in your bite and even bone loss! For long term oral health, a full set of teeth is critical. We’re here to give you the complete smile you deserve.
There are several solutions Dr. Agee offers patients with tooth loss:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
Daily life can take its toll on our teeth. Even the simple things, like drinking coffee or tea, can leave stains, or your light-hearted neighborhood football match may leave a little chip or crack…
Cosmetic dentistry in Portland has never been as easy, painless, or well done as it is with Portland Dentist Dr. Agee. Our doctor and team have the professional training to clean up your beautiful smile and the experience to keep you comfortable and relaxed throughout every procedure!
We offer a variety of cosmetic dental services:
- Teeth whitening with a custom-fit whitening gel tray for in office and at home use
- Tooth bonding for a natural-looking and secure repair of small chipped or cracks
- Porcelain Veneers to shape the smile you’ve always wanted
Dr. Agee and his team love getting the smallest members of each family off to a great dental start to life! We know how critical your child’s dental care is, and we team up with family members as well as small patients to ensure that each child’s unique needs are met and that he or she feels comfortable and safe throughout each dental visit. After all, caring for your oral health should be fun!
We recommend small patients first visit our Portland dental office around his or her first birthday or with the arrival of that first tooth. Early visits ensure proper education for parents and the best start to the great preventive dental care that will keep your child smiling for a lifetime.
