The first appointment begins with a personal meeting with Dr. Golia. We treat people, not patients. Developing a personal relationship is equally important as rendering clinical services.
Thereafter, a comprehensive examination takes place which includes a head and neck cancer screening, temporomandibular joint examination, and a detailed examination of the teeth, soft tissue, supporting structures, alignment, bite, and muscle tonicity. A complete set of digital radiographs are taken and models of your mouth are made, if necessary.
Based upon your periodontal health, you will be given a subsequent appointment of appropriate length for your teeth to be cleaned by our licensed dental hygienist. You will be informed of the latest theories and techniques for controlling dental disease.
All of the information gathered is compiled and evaluated, and a plan is drawn up to meet your immediate needs and long-term objectives. AII treatment options with cost estimates are discussed. We believe in firm mutual understanding as a basis for successful treatment.
Payment is required at the time services are performed to help reduce billing and accounting costs. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. Other financial arrangements are available when extensive dental care is necessary, or when the dentistry performed exceeds your budget or insurance benefits. We will be sensitive to your financial circumstances within the framework of sound business practices.
