Initial Visit and Comprehensive Examination

Your First Visit to Merrimack Smiles

Your initial visit to our office is crucial in establishing your oral health baseline. During this comprehensive examination, we will perform an oral cancer screening, a periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your bite (occlusion), and a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and the overall oral anatomy.

Our Progressive Approach

At Merrimack Smiles, we pride ourselves on being thorough and forward-thinking in diagnosing, treating, and preventing dental issues. Utilizing the latest technology, we minimize radiation exposure during radiographs (x-rays) and use an intra-oral camera to capture high-resolution images of your teeth and tissues.

Commitment to Education

Education is a cornerstone of our practice. Our team members are dedicated life-long learners, regularly attending continuing education courses to stay current and improve as a group. We also prioritize patient education, providing detailed verbal and visual information to help you understand the processes occurring in your mouth. This empowers you to make informed decisions about your treatment and helps prevent future issues.

Our Patient-Centered Philosophy

We treat our patients the way we would like to be treated—offering detailed, comprehensive information in a warm, friendly, and professional environment. Our goal is to ensure you feel comfortable and confident in your dental care.
