"I’ve been coming to Riverchase for over 10 years. Some doctor and staff changes, but I remain extremely pleased with service, expertise, and very friendly bedside manner. I’m not a dentist fan, and pain is no friend either. They always explain the procedure thoroughly. If I’m a bit squeamish about procedure, I get the funny gas, and I’m not tense as a board and sore (from my tensing up). Great location too. I like everything about Riverchase Dental."- R.M. / Google / Nov 06, 2017

What to Expect
An in-depth dental examination will begin with a consultation between our dentist and the patient. We will enquire about the patient's health, including any current conditions or medical problems. Our dentist will discuss with the patient to find out if they have experienced any oral health changes. To get a detailed picture of the patient's mouth, our dentist will produce digital X-rays to see the bone structure, teeth, and gums. A visual exam of the mouth with touch will also assist in diagnosing signs of oral decay, cancerous conditions, or disease. The probing device will be used to inspect the health of the gums by measuring the depth of the gum pockets and looking for areas of infection.
If our dentists find any areas of worry during the dental exam, they will discuss with the individual about possible preventative measures that may be conducted at Riverchase Dental Care or at the patient's home. Ongoing check-ups will be vital so that the individual can continue to maintain their oral health. If a patient experiences ongoing problems our dentists may recommended that the individual see a periodontist or endodontist.
