We are excited to announce the opening of our brand-new state state-of-the-art facility in building IV of the Addison Medical Professional complex on Linton Boulevard just east of Jog Road in Delray Beach. While we have been in practice in Delray Beach for the past 18 years, our new office represents a giant leap forward in technology and quality of care for our patients. Come visit and ask for a tour!
Your first visit to our office will be for a comprehensive examination and consultation. At this visit, you will meet your doctor and he will perform a thorough examination and review of your medical and dental history, obtain digital x-rays if needed, and discuss treatment options for you. If necessary, we will coordinate referrals to other specialists for you.
Since many of the patients that we see need extensive treatment, we may also obtain impressions or molds of your teeth in order to fully assess your dental condition. Photographs are often taken at this visit as well so that our doctors and laboratory technicians can discuss your case in detail once you leave the office.
In many cases, the doctor will invite you to return to the office for a no-charge case review visit several days after your initial consultation. If necessary, our in-house laboratory technicians will be present to discuss your case and to review your models with you.
In addition, this will allow you to have plenty of time to think about what is being proposed and to have time to ask questions and have them answered to your satisfaction. We encourage you to bring your spouse or significant other to these visits if you so desire.
We screen each and every patient for oral cancer at both routine appointments and when you visit our dental hygienist. Our examination includes a visual exam, palpation of the lymph nodes in your neck and palpation of certain oral structures.
We may recommend other in-office oral cancer diagnostic tests on higher risk patients. Traditionally, cigarette smokers and those patients that smoked and have stopped have been at higher than average risk for oral cancer. However, recent studies have found that younger patients who have never smoked may be at high risk for oral cancer as well. Our doctors will discuss advanced screening methods with you if they feel that you are in one of these groups. As always, feel free to ask our doctors about anything that concerns your health!
