First Visit

Welcome to our practice!

Dr. Ora and his staff are pleased that you have chosen us to meet your dental needs. Please help us give you the time and attention you deserve by downloading and completing the patient registration, medical history, and privacy notice forms BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

All necessary radiographs (X-rays) will be taken during your initial visit UNLESS we have received CURRENT X-rays of diagnostic quality from your previous dentist. Because dental X-rays help us detect dental conditions early, they are CRITICAL in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental problems. Dr. Ora is honored that you entrust him with your dental care and he takes this very seriously. To this end, Dr. Ora will NOT compromise your dental health or the care he provides, by practicing without current X-rays. For your safety Dr Ora has invested in the most current digital equipment available, which reduces radiation up to 80% 

During your first visit, one of our registered hygienists will take you on a guided tour of your mouth with an intra-oral camera and will perform a periodontal examination to determine the health of your gum tissue and supporting bone structure. Dr. Ora will perform a comprehensive dental examination, oral cancer screening, and a TMJ examination. Utilizing all this diagnostic information, Dr. Ora and your hygienist will formulate and discuss with you a plan for your dental care.

Many patients will request and some will receive  a cleaning during their initial visit. However, it is impossible for our office to know your specific dental needs and the amount of time required to address them, so we cannot guarantee you will get a cleaning on this first visit.

We are honored that you have entrusted us with your dental health. Please allow us to schedule sufficient time to give you the care you deserve.
