Sometimes patients want to avoid dental exams, either because they have a dental phobia or because they want to save the money from costs associated with dental exams. We provide the type of dental care we would want for our own families and that includes a dental exam to determine the type of hygiene appointment that will be the best for you.
Dental anxiety is one of the reasons that people say they stay away from the dental office. Dr. Schoen completely understands that the dental chair might not be your favorite place to be. Don’t worry! We are not offended. However, Dr. Schoen is committed to patient comfort and to helping people with anxiety feel more comfortable. He will go at your pace and has an extremely gentle touch. In fact, he even invested in a pain-free injection system called The Wand®. It allows painless delivery of anesthetic so your treatment is completely comfortable from start to finish.
Dental Exam Costs
The cost of a dental exam is very low compared to any dental procedures. A routine exam allows Dr. Schoen to identify and treat any conditions before they worsen. Dental diseases such as decay, periodontal disease, and bone loss tend to worsen over time. Without a dental exam, it is impossible to diagnose your conditions.
