Free Initial Consultation
We offer a free initial consultation
as an opportunity for you to meet Dr. Buzz Raymond, discuss your concerns, and receive his professional opinion before you make any further decisions about your dental care. Your no-fee initial consultation will take place in our conference room or in a treatment room, depending on your situation. This meeting with Dr. Raymond will last about 30 minutes. It is a great way for you to “test the waters,” see our office, and meet our team.
Patients wanting thorough information about a variety of dental concerns benefit most from our comprehensive examination. We prefer to take time to develop a plan that will prevent future problems.
Proactive and preventive treatment can minimize surprises and unexpected expenses.
In your comprehensive examination, Dr. Raymond will gather information through:
Oral history and patient background
- This time will be spent hearing your dental story, your past experiences, your concerns, a review of your general medical health, and learning what goals are important to you.
Oral health examination
- Examining and recording existing details about your teeth, gums, jaw joint (TMJ) muscles, and bite
- Digital X-rays
- Digital photographs
- Impressions of your teeth, and measurements of your jaw and various jaw motions
Review of findings with discussion about your next steps
- This time will be spent discussing what was found, and the options, cost and time for treatment.
In order to make sure you have a chance to be heard, we allow sufficient time, so you won’t feel rushed. Dr. Buzz Raymond believes people make their best decisions when they feel heard, have appropriate information, and have an opportunity to make informed personal choices. He encourages patients to be a partner in their treatment planning.
