Your first visit is all about you: We have options on how you may like to begin with our practice.

Issue-Focused or Emergency Exam:  If you are only interested in having a single issue or an emergency addressed this exam by one of our doctors can acess the problem for you.  Our doctors will present your treatment options and go over the consequences of non-treatment for that issue only.  Should you be hurting, we'll do whatever we can to alleviate your pain. 

Healthy New Patient Exam & Cleaning:  If you are looking to get established with a new dentist and have your routine cleaning done this visit is for you!  At this visit one of our hygienist will take any x-rays (provided you've had none recently), then perform a periodontal assessement and screening to check the health of your gums and establish a baseline of health with our office.  Provided your gums are healthy a full prevenative cleaning will be performed.  The doctor will then do a comprehensive exam focusing on your current state of dental health as well as review any dental problems that may be present.  They will then discuss any treatment options that may be needed or review any questions you may have.  

 
New Patient Comprehensive Evaluation:  If you desire a smile makeover, have several areas of dental concerns/needs, or just want to know everything there is to know about your dental health, then book our comprehensive evaluation.  This visit starts with taking a full set of x-rays and intraoral photos.  Dr. Jacob D. Kelly, DDS will review your dental and medical history, perform a visual oral cancer screening, and evaluate with assessments as needed your muscles, joints, bone tissue, and teeth.  This is all done with an eye towards solutions to achieving ideal oral health.  Together you can determine the level of dental treatment you desire and how that works with what you clinically need. 
 
Consultation or Second Opinion:  This visit is a great opportunity to see our office in person and meet our team.  This visit can address a single quesiton or concern in office with Dr. Jacob Kelly that at times can be difficult to give a complete or detailed answer by phone.
