Your First Visit

When you first meet Dr. Dechavez, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss your special needs or goals. If anxiety, family income, or any other issues have made it difficult for you to get the care you need, now is a good time to voice these concerns.

A thorough and gentle cleaning—or sets of cleanings, if needed—can be done during your first visit. Our office prides itself on our dental cleanings.

If your first appointment is an emergency visit, it might be necessary to limit our treatment to relieving your discomfort. We strongly recommend that the patient schedule a follow-up visit at his or her convenience for a complete and thorough examination.

Initial Exam

If it has been awhile since your last dental appointment, Dr. Dechavez will begin by taking several X-rays using modern digital imaging technology. The images are ready in seconds, and their clarity makes it easier for Dr. Dechavez to educate patients about their dental health. To further diagnose and treat your specific problems, other cutting-edge technologies are available—including Dexis®-CariVu Infrared light to detect cavities, and CEREC®, a state-of-the-art system that makes it possible to complete beautiful, long-lasting ceramic restorations in a single visit.

It is easy to make an appointment for your initial examination and dental treatments with Gil Dechavez DDS - G Smile Dental.
