"I am someone who cringes at the thought of the dentist. I have always dreaded appointments and embarrassingly, will try to avoid it at all costs. I just had my new patient appointment at DentalWorks and left feeling so relieved! Their staff was the friendliest, personable, competent, comforting staff I have ever experienced in the medical field. They made sure I was comfortable with every detail including running my insurance for every single procedure to tell me what my exact out of pocket expense would be for each charge before I decided if I wanted it done or not. I truly felt like I was the only patient in the office even though I know that was not the case. I was absolutely floored with how well I was treated and how pleasant of an experience it was. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THEM!"- H.P. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

What to Expect
A detailed dental check will proceed with a conversation between our dentist and the patient. We will record a history about the patient's health, including any medical history and current medications. Our dentist will talk with the patient to find out if they have became aware of any oral health changes. To get a accurate picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will obtain digital X-rays to obtain an image of the mouth. A visual examination of the mouth with probing will also aid in finding signs of oral concerns. The probing instrument will be used to examine the strength of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and finding areas of inflammation.
If our dentists find any areas of infection during the dental examination, they will work with the him or her about possible dental procedures that may be completed at DentalWorks - Carmel Village or at the patient's home. Dental well visits will be recommended so that the he or she can continue to keep up with their overall oral health.
