New PatientsBrookfield, WI
When you arrive at our Brookfield office for your initial appointment, you’ll be greeted by our friendly front office team member, who will guide you through the registration process. If you’ve downloaded new patient forms from our website and filled them out in advance, check-in will proceed very quickly. Plan to spend about an hour with us for your thorough exam and cleaning. During your visit, Dr. Tang will assess certain aspects of your smile to properly gauge your current oral condition. He’ll spend the time to get to know you and truly understand your concerns. Together, we can achieve your smile goals.
During your exam, the doctor will:
- Review your medical and dental history
- Perform an oral cancer screening
- Conduct a tooth-by-tooth check for decay
- Check the integrity of existing dental work
- Look for any signs of gum disease and evaluate the condition of your gum tissue
- Evaluate your TMJ joints and surrounding muscles
- Determine how well your top and bottom teeth fit together (bite or occlusion)
- Take a full-set of digital X-rays, if necessary
- Take Panorex X-rays, if necessary
- Use intraoral and digital cameras to take pictures of your smile
The information gathered from this comprehensive exam will determine what treatments and care the doctor recommends for your smile. After analyzing all the findings, Dr. Tang will go over them with you and help you select procedures that will best meet your dental needs and your budget.
