About Dental Exams

By providing dental exams, Riverchase Dental Care can help patients around Coppell, TX take life-long measures to reverse oral health problems in the early stages. This is the most effective method to give the patient a more effective plan of treatments that may be easier to overcome and less expensive.
"I have been going to Riverchase Dental for about 3 years. The Riverchase Dental staff are very friendly and accommodating. They are ALWAYS very pleasant. I had to reschedule a teeth cleaning for my daughter and myself 3 times. Each reschedule was done quickly and with no questions asked. The dental hygienist was very thorough, efficient, and friendly as well. I have tried several dentists since moving to TX 20 years ago. A few of the ones I visited only wanted to cold sell you BEFORE getting to the business at hand. NOT a big fan of that tactic."- L.L. / Google / Sep 22, 2018

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.
The front office staff at Riverchase Dental Care will contact the patient's dental insurance company to discuss the benefits plan and confirm all up front expenses prior to the visit. Riverchase Dental Care offers payment plans to help assist with the final bill.
