New Patient Exams & Cleanings in Austin

New Patient Exam & Cleanings

One of our friendly staff will greet you on your first visit.

Thorough exams and knowledgeable care

We welcome new patients and want you to feel comfortable and relaxed. After a tour of our modern facility, you’ll meet with either Dr. Lori or John Babineau to discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health. Your first visit begins with a full New Patient Exam as follows.

Digital X-rays

New Patient Exam & Cleanings

Digital X-rays use less radiation and produce higher quality images compared to traditional X-rays.

We use low-radiation digital X-rays to capture a detailed image of your mouth. In some cases we will also use a panoramic X-ray that shows a full view of your teeth and gums in one image.

Intraoral camera

We will sometimes use an intraoral camera that displays images of your mouth on a monitor in real time, allowing you to see what we see so that any issues can be clearly addressed.

Oral exam

New Patient Exam & Cleanings

Our doctors explain what they find in an oral exam.

Dr. Lori or John Babineau will do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, checking for signs of decay or gum disease.

Early cavity detection

We use the DIAGNOdent fluorescence technology to safely detect hidden cavities. This minimally invasive procedure is simple, comfortable and effective.

TMJ exam

Your doctor will check your TMJ (jaw joint) to determine if there are any issues with alignment.

Oral cancer screening

Although oral cancer is actually quite rare, we like to conduct a screening to be sure there are no lesions that could become a problem. We also offer Oral HPV testing for an additional fee. See below for more information.

Treatment planning

New Patient Exam & Cleanings

Treatment planning is an important aspect of dentistry and necessary for high-quality results.

Your doctor will review the results of your exam and X-rays and outline the options available for improving your oral health. You’ll both discuss the options and determine what is best for you, and you’ll receive a written treatment plan.

You will also have the opportunity to meet with our financial advisor to discuss insurance benefits and payment options.

We provide you with brochures that clearly explain any dental procedure that is applicable to your care.

Additional diagnostics for oral cancer

Dr. John and Lori Babineau also offer Oral HPV testing. This is not included in the $89 new patient special offer. Oral HPV is a manifestation of the HPV virus in the mouth. Specific types of oral HPV are can lead to oral cancer, so early detection of oral HPV is important.

Patient education

New Patient Exam & Cleanings

We educate all of our patients so they can make informed decisions about their dental health.

Our hygienists educate you on how to maintain good oral health. They use training videos and photos to demonstrate the difference between healthy and diseased gums.

To help our patients keep their mouths healthy between visits, we offer product packages such as therapy for dry mouths and fluoride treatments for children to ward off cavities.

Gentle, ultrasonic scalers

Ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency vibrations to quickly eliminate hard mineral deposits, tough stains and tartar from teeth without harming the them. This is an efficient and effective tool for cleaning the teeth. Patient comfort level is another excellent reason why this is one of the best tools for ensuring a thorough cleaning.
