New Patient Exam
Get those pearly whites shining again!
TMJ & TMD Screenings
TMJ & TMD can cause earaches and headaches, clicking of the jaw, lockjaw, pain in the jaw, or issues with chewing – if you have any of these issues, it’s not a bad idea to get it checked.
Oral Bacteria Analysis
In order to provide a more individualized, holistic and whole body approach to your care, a plaque sample is taken, and looked at using a microscope, right there in the examination room.
An effective upper airway evaluation can help identify a sleep breathing disorder, like Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
Low-Radiation 3D X-Rays
Our state-of-the-art low-radiation iCAT 3-D X-Ray system provides x-rays of the entire skull, showing so much more than just your teeth and jaw. Traditional x-rays aren’t nearly as effective, and they exude much higher radiation.
Oral Cancer Screening
Utilizing VELscope technology, Dr. Welch and her team can utilize a blue light device that unveils cancerous and pre-cancerous cells in a non-invasive view. The best part? It takes less than two-minutes!Make your new patient experience appointment today for your initial holistic dentistry consultation! Call us at (850) 243-1534. We can’t wait to meet you!
