Welcome to ADA
YOUR FIRST VISIT TO OUR MANHATTAN DENTIST OFFICE
Welcome to Advanced Dental Arts! At your first appointment, our doctor will complete a comprehensive oral examination, including an oral cancer exam, periodontal screening, and any necessary x-rays. Following the exam, the dentist will discuss their findings with you and, if necessary, develop a treatment plan you are comfortable with. For our healthy patients, we can also arrange to have your teeth cleaned at the same visit.
