Check Up | Oral & Dental Exam
Our practice stresses the importance of elaborating on the status and condition of patients while you, your kids and loved ones are being examined. Our staff at Fresno Smile Makeovers fills you in on the details of their findings before, during, and following examinations. If an examination uncovers any issues that call for treatment a discussion, outlining the available treatment options, will be our first course of action to help you find relief. If we identify any potential complications that may call for specialized treatment; we will be happy to provide help by way of a specialist. Patients are our focal point and we urge to ask your dentists questions.
