New Patient Exam

The new patient exam is your introduction to Ellis County Family Dentistry and Dr. Atkins. We are committed to helping you and your family achieve the highest level of oral health. All of our treatment rooms are equipped with flat screen monitors so that you can view your digital x-rays and intraoral pictures along with the doctor. During your initial exam, we will be conducting a thorough examination to help identify personal goals as well as optimize your dental health. Your initial exam will include a review of the following:

  • Treatment goals and any areas of concern
  • Your overall health and dental history
  • Digital x-rays - utilizes 90% less radiation
  • Digital photography
  • Examination with an intraoral camera - the size of a dental mirror, this camera allows us to get an up close view of your teeth
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodontal examination
  • TMJ function as it relates to your jaw
  • Any other necessary information in helping you achieve excellent oral health

As long as we see no evidence of gum disease, we will complete a thorough cleaning and provide any oral hygiene recommendations.

After the examination, Dr. Atkins will review your treatment options so you fully understand your dental needs. At that time, we will also discuss any financial questions you have and help you schedule any necessary appointments. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible!

Please allow plenty of time to meet with us. We are excited to get to know you and partner with you to create the level of oral health and the smile you’ve always desired.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ellis County Family Dentistry.
