Your First Visit
As your Boca Raton dentist, Dr. Cuomo focuses on prevention, early detection, and education as the foundation for exceptional oral health. As a new patient, you receive a comprehensive dental examination including charting existing dentition, periodontal probing, oral cancer screening, head and neck exam, bite analysis, blood pressure check, Doppler analysis to test for TMJ disorder, and more. Any necessary x-rays are taken with our digital x-ray system and immediately viewed on chairside computer monitors. Dr. Cuomo examines your mouth, tooth by tooth, through his dental microscope and takes photos of any areas of concern. You can follow along with Dr. Cuomo, if you wish, by wearing video goggles during the exam. A skilled dental hygienist thoroughly cleans and polishes teeth. Finally, Dr. Cuomo meets with you one on one to discuss the results of your dental exam and provide treatment recommendations.
