Your Initial Consultation
Dr. Hunt starts with a comprehensive examination including the jaw, joints, soft tissues and teeth, and completes the process with a thorough screening for oral cancer. The examination is followed by a treatment conference where Dr. Hunt will provide all options for treatment, identify your needs and goals, and answer any questions.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants will be incorporated into your ideal treatment plan, as this is the optimum choice for tooth replacement.
