Consultations and Second Opinions

Consultations and Second Opinions

At Signature Smiles of LA, we provide both initial consultations and second opinions for patients considering different options for their oral health and cosmetic adjustments.

What To Expect During A Consultation

A consultation with Dr. Sheila Mahooti typically involves a conservative exam and digital x-rays to help Dr. Mahooti get a full picture of your dental health. Without a thorough initial consultation, it can be hard for patients to fully understand their needs and the dental services available to address those needs. Whether it’s a toothache or an imperfect smile, many patients are either unsure of what is needed to correct the problem, or feel overwhelmed by all of the choices and differences between treatment methods.

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. She 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 approaches. 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.
