When you first walk into Gentle Dental Care we hope you feel as though you are being welcomed into a friends home. With comfortable couches, the latest magazines, and a warm fireplace, many of our patients arrive at their appointments intentionally early to enjoy the welcoming atmosphere. At Gentle Dental Care we value your time, so you’ll find you don’t wait very long before one of our wonderful team members escorts you back to see Dr. Kamodia. To help make your experience more comfortable we offer blankets and neck pillows once you are seated. We always have headphones and relaxing music on hand to help drown out the sounds of dental work during treatment.
If it’s your first time visiting us, Dr. Kamodia will spend some time talking with you about what brought you in and the goals and expectations you have for treatment. Whether you are having a problem with a specific tooth or are here for a general check up and cleaning, we will take your blood pressure and review your medical history to ensure safe treatment. We will take the appropriate x-rays to see the roots of your teeth, the bone surrounding your teeth, and to check for cavities in between your teeth. Dr. Kamodia will screen you for any risk of oral cancer by checking the lymph nodes of your neck and jaw, looking in the back of your throat, checking under your tongue, and looking at the inside of your cheeks and lips for any unusual findings. Dr. Kamodia will then check all of your teeth for cavities and screen you for any signs of gum disease. No matter the treatment or procedure you’re considering, Dr. Kamodia will discuss all your options and answer any questions you may have. We talk to you about your goals for dental care and which options best fit both your goals and your lifestyle.
