Welcome to Hawkins Family Dentistry! Dr. Lori Hawkins and our team are so excited that you have entrusted your dental care to us. Our dentist and team are committed to provide you and your family with the gentle dental care you deserve. We serve with compassion and work hard to ensure your comfort. Our team will take the time to listen to any concerns that you may have and answer your questions.
During your first appointment with us, our dentist will perform a visual examination of your teeth, taking notes in your patient charts. Any dental issues or potential dental issues that you may have will be noted. Our dentist will also perform periodontal probing, which measures the depth of pockets around your teeth. Periodontal probing helps determine the health of your gums. Panoramic X-rays and bite-wing X-rays will be taken so that our dentist can properly diagnose your entire mouth. These X-rays will help our dentist to see those areas of the mouth that are difficult to examine with the naked eye. Based on the findings of your initial oral examination, Dr. Lori Hawkins will propose treatment options. Our dentist and team will make sure that you understand all of your treatment options so that you can take an active part in your dental care.
Feel free to contact our dental office today to schedule an appointment and to learn more about your initial oral examination in Belpre, Ohio.
