Front Desk

Your medical history is an important part of your dental visits. Why? Because certain medications and health conditions can impact your oral health and how we manage your treatment needs. If you’d like, you can prepare for your first visit by completing our patient intake form.

Oral Hygiene

At your first cleaning appointment, we take the time to get to know you and everything about your teeth, gums, and mouth to see a clear picture of your oral health. Because of this, we will spend a little extra time than we do with your maintenance hygiene appointments. Please take advantage of this appointment by asking any questions you have about homecare. We have a strong focus on preventive education, and we love answering questions!

Diagnostics

Used to check for issues and to establish a baseline for future care, digital diagnostic equipment is adjustable to emit up to 90% less radiation than film x-rays. It’s also much more environmentally friendly. At Graceview Family Dentistry, we also use a small pen-sized camera – called an intraoral camera – so that we can show you what we see when we examine your mouth. It’s an amazing tool that gives you great insight into your dental treatment plan.

Checkup

Meet Dr. Tomi Osih or Dr. Ali Safi and discuss your personal oral health. After a thorough examination, you’ll learn what we’ve found. Together, we’ll work out the personalized approach that will work best for you. We’ll set up a regular care schedule, design a treatment plan, and if you’re interested, discuss your cosmetic options. We will work with you to help you meet your goals.
