Be sure to arrive a few minutes early so you can fill out any needed paperwork. This paperwork is also available here on our website, so feel free to fill it out ahead of time and bring it to your appointment. It will be a time-saver. This is also a good time for you to ask any questions you might have about your appointment. If you are feeling anxious about your appointment, please be sure to let us know.
We'll begin by taking x-rays for Dr. Pilgrim to review as part of your exam. Once you are brought back into the exam rooms, you’ll talk with Dr. Pilgrim about any oral health concerns you might have. We’ll go over your medical history at that time as well.
Dr. Pilgrim will begin with a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums. He will pay particular attention to any areas you might be concerned about. He will perform an oral cancer screening and check your blood pressure as well.
After the exam is complete, Dr. Pilgrim will discuss a personalized treatment plan with you and recommend treatment options, if necessary.
