In your first visit to Saddleback Dentistry, you will have the chance to get to know our friendly staff and meet with the doctors and learn about the condition of your teeth, gums and jaw during our new patient exam. We use the latest technology during your exam and our experienced doctors will help identify any and all oral health issues that you may have.

New Patient Exam

When you arrive for your new patient exam, you will be greeted by our friendly front office staff. You will have had the chance to complete some online paperwork before you arrive at the office.

The new patient exam includes the following:

Digital X-rays

First Visit & New Patient Exam

Our friendly and experienced team will guide you along your new patient exam.

As part of your exam, you will receive full-mouth digital X-rays including a panoramic X-ray. Digital X-rays emit 80% less radiation than traditional film X-rays. The images are more accurate and can be produced much faster.

Intraoral photos

Digital photos of your mouth will be taken with an intraoral camera, and you will be shown the images on an iPad during your exam.

Full oral exam and consultation

Our doctors will explain procedures and treatments.

Dr. Garcia or Dr. Conkle will meet with you and discover your needs and the reason for your visit. The doctor will conduct a full oral exam, checking your gums, teeth and jaw thoroughly so that any and all issues will be uncovered. The doctor will perform an oral cancer screening, and check for signs of gum disease.

Diagnosis and written treatment plan

The doctor will carefully go over the results of your exam, taking care to explain everything clearly and answering any questions you may have. The doctor will recommend options to treat any areas needing attention.
