What to Expect From Your First Visit at Marina Tooth Fairy Dental

We Believe That a Comprehensive First Exam is the Best Way to Begin the Process of Obtaining a Healthy, Beautiful Smile.

To ensure success in our procedures, we take the necessary time to fully & thoroughly evaluate your present dental condition. Our goal is to give our clients the necessary information & education so that they may enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come. Here is what you should expect:

As a new patient, when you arrive, we will escort you to your treatment room where one of our team members will help you fill out the necessary paperwork. We continue with a one-on-one discussion covering your past dental history & present concerns. A treatment coordinator will come & take digital photographs, which are used for computerized imaging, & guide you through the rest of the process. Once everything is complete, Dr. Benjamin will complete a full comprehensive exam, which will include:

  • A chart of all your teeth & the restorations presently in place, & not any restorative recommendations
  • A complete cavity check, tooth-by-tooth
  • Oral cancer screening—screening intra-orally, checking the tongue, cheeks & surrounding soft tissues
  • A thorough evaluation of your bite
  • A smile evaluation
  • Dental x-rays—digital radiography which uses 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays
  • Diagnostic molds, if necessary

Some patients choose to combine their initial visit with their hygienic cleaning. Our hygienists pride themselves on the highest level of skill, education & experience they bring to every patient. Between their extensive post-graduate training & their knowledge of advanced technology, they provide the latest techniques for comfortable dental hygiene. During your hygiene appointment, not only will we clean your teeth, but we will also perform a full-mouth periodontal probing to determine if you have any signs of gum disease.

After we have provided a complete examination & hygienic cleaning & presented you with your treatment plan, we can work with you to get started on a treatment, which is most important for you. Whether it is cosmetic or restorative work, we are here to work with you in getting a healthy, beautiful smile that you are proud to show others.

Although most patients do come to us for general dental procedures including hygienic cleanings, fillings & cosmetic work, we practice dentistry with the aesthetics of the final result in mind. We place special emphasis on making you look & feel great.

Our hygiene, restorative & cosmetic fees are comparable to those at premier cosmetic dental boutiques nationally & in the Bay Area. In fact, depending on the procedure, our fees may be lower than other dental practices. We encourage you to experience what separates us from other dental practices. We are confident you will agree that our services are value-priced. We look forward to you becoming a part of our family here at Marina Tooth Fairy Dental.
