What happens in a first visit?
At your first visit, Dr. Kibbey will examine your medical history and your dental health. He may take X-rays to get a clear picture of your jawbone and the insides of your teeth. He’ll also examine your gum tissue, your bite (the way your teeth fit together when they close), and screen for oral cancer with ViziLite Plus. After he’s thoroughly evaluated your oral health, he’ll discuss your options for treatment and answer any questions you have. Some patients prefer to have their hygiene appointment completed at this same visit, and we’re happy to accommodate their needs. Because we treat our patients as individuals, and not as numbers on a chart, your visit will be tailored according to your unique situation.
Why does the dentist use an intraoral camera?
An intraoral camera is a pen-sized camera that takes live images of your mouth, magnifies them, and projects them on-screen. With an intraoral camera, Dr. Kibbey can more accurately diagnose dental conditions, and he can share the information with you, chairside. Intraoral cameras also allow us to show you the effects of certain treatments, whether they're cosmetic, restorative, or periodontal cleanings, from a viewpoint that you might not otherwise receive. Intraoral cameras allow us to enhance your experience and allow you to become a more involved member of your dental treatment.

How long have you been in business?
