Don't wait til hurts: For every new patient who comes in (not an emergency) i review the patient's medical / dental history then do exams & chart: 1) oral cancer exam 2) visual exam of the teeth 3) periodontal gumline eval 4) diagnodent laser decay detection 5)full mouth / panoramic radiograph 6) intraoral photographs of all teeth. Then i set an appointment where i review all with patient & present treatment plan.
