At our dental office in Encino, we provide both initial consultations and second opinions for patients who are looking at options for their oral health and cosmetic adjustments.
What does a consultation entail?
A consultation may involve a conservative exam and digital x-rays to help our dentist get a full picture of your dental health. Many patients find that a consultation is beneficial because it can be hard to fully understand all of the dental services that we offer. You may have tooth pain or a smile that you are unhappy with cosmetically, and are unsure what we could do to help or are overwhelmed by all of the choices and differences between treatment methods.
Our Encino dentist Dr. Mahooti, will go over your dental issue and use her acquired knowledge and experience to tell you about the services that could benefit you. Our dentist will also spend time during your consultation talking about your expectations for your health and appearance so that we can make the best decision together.
What does a second opinion entail?
If you have visited another dental office for a general or cosmetic dental issue, you may have come away from your appointment feeling uncomfortable with what the dentist suggested that you do. You might even feel like the recommended treatment is extreme or not the best option for you. During a second opinion, we will examine your mouth and give our own diagnosis and recommendation so that you can compare the two suggestions. We will go over your options thoroughly so that you feel comfortable and informed. Our goal is to make sure that you feel confident about the treatment method or minimally invasive procedure that you choose.
Contact our dentist in Encino today to schedule an appointment for your consultation or a second opinion, so that we can get you on the right track.
