Without hesitation, they told me to come in right away and they will work me into the schedule to be seen. They were very busy but I was there for no more than 35 minutes, as a last minute emergency appointment.

What to Expect
A thorough dental exam will start with a discussion between our dentist and the patient. We will ask about the patient's health, including any current medications, illnesses or surgeries. Our dentist will ask the patient to find out if they have noticed any oral health changes. To get a complete picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will take digital X-rays to view the teeth, gum, and bones. A visual check of the mouth with palpation will also help in checking signs of oral decay or disease. The probing tool will be used to check the condition of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and identifying areas of recession.
If our dentists find any areas of concern during the dental consultation, they will talk to the patient about possible treatment plans that may be performed at Imperial Oaks Dental Care or at the patient's home. Progress will be important so that the patient can continue to improve their dental health. If a patient has ongoing issues our dentists may suggest that he or she visit a oral surgeon or specialist.
The billing coordinators at Imperial Oaks Dental Care will contact the patient's dental insurance company to consult with and confirm all out of pocket fees prior to the visit. Imperial Oaks Dental Care offers payment programs to help assist with the expenses.
