Your first visit will be a comprehensive dental exam with our dental hygienist and Dr. Higgins. They will go over your concerns and make general recommendations to get you to optimal dental health. At this appointment we like to take a Panoramic x-ray and Cavity Detecting (Bitewing) x-rays. We may also take photographs of your smile, diagnostic models of existing teeth, or any other appropriate x-rays. You will also be scheduled with our hygienist to bring your teeth and gums to optimum health and if needed.
After Dr. Higgins studies your specific case, you will be given an appointment with him for any necessary dental treatment. Only the most artistic hands should create your work of art. Before beginning treatment, Dr. Higgins will discuss your smile and your concerns. Together you will develop a plan to achieve your desires. Emergency appointments are available and dental insurance is welcome. We gladly file all insurance for you. Payment plans are also available through CareCredit at www.carecredit.com.
