Worried about your next dental exam? There’s no reason to be! We make it an experience that’s easy and comfortable, without anxiety. When you come to our office for a comprehensive exam, we’ll first do a visual examination of your entire mouth. This gives Dr. Hollingsworth an initial glimpse at the status of your oral health. That’s just step one! Next, we’ll:
- Chart your teeth and note the status of their health
- Check to see if you have any periodontal disease present
- Take both panoramic and bite-wing high-resolution digital x-rays
- Conduct a thorough oral cancer screening (at every visit)
When these steps are complete, we’ll discuss what’s next for you. Usually, patients will require some sort of treatment plan to address any problems, minor or major. Always know that there’s no pressure for you to say yes to something you don’t feel comfortable with. We’re here for you and your smile, every step of the way. Whatever your needs may be, Cherice Hollingsworth, DMD is your forever home for all things general dentistry in Lexington.
