How much is this going to cost me?

Once you see your dentist and have a treatment plan, the office manager will provide you with detailed information about costs, financing alternatives, and insurance.

Can I schedule a first appointment just for a cleaning?

An initial exam to check your oral health is the essential first step to giving you a healthy mouth. Based on your oral health, your dentist will create a comprehensive treatment and will then quickly schedule your appointment for a cleaning.

What will happen on my first visit to the office?

Your first appointment with Aspen Dental will include an exam and consultation, and may include X-rays. Following your exam, the dentist will explain recommendations for your care and give you the opportunity to discuss treatment options and ask questions.

Will I get my teeth cleaned on the first visit?

There are actually several levels of cleaning available, depending on your oral health status. To determine the best cleaning for you, and to schedule adequate time with a hygienist, your dentist will need to see you first for a comprehensive exam.

What is a comprehensive treatment plan?

You'll hear the term "comprehensive care" often at Dr. Jeevan Ghatnekar. It means that your dentist will examine your entire mouth to evaluate your overall oral health, and recommend treatment for long-lasting good health, rather than just fixing your immediate problem.
