Full Examination & Diagnosis In A Friendly Environment
After being welcomed in our practice, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire so that you can tell us your biggest concerns and what you want from your dental care. Dr. Kardaris and her team will do a full examination of your teeth and mouth and your personalized treatment plan is made.
Your new patient exam will include the following services.
