At your first visit, Dr Acker will perform a brief oral evaluation after listening to your dental goals in order to review your treatment goals. This appointment will provide the perfect opportunity for you to get to know our compassionate team as well as Dr Acker and discuss any special needs you may have. Once we complete your wellness evaluation and establish your treatment goals we can then move on to your second visit.

Your second Visit – education and comprehensive examination

After your initial screening and introduction to our practice, you are then ready to move onto a comprehensive oral examination. Dr Acker will perform a full oral assessment to determine the most effective treatment plan that is suited to you and your dental requirements. Dr Acker will walk you through what you can expect from the prescribed treatment, including the procedures, times and associated costs to ensure you are fully informed about your dental care and treatment process.

Your second visit is also the first step towards educating you about best practice in good oral hygiene; after all, you can’t have a strong house without a solid foundation – and you can’t have strong teeth without healthy gums. Our team of dental hygienists are specially trained in the areas of optimal oral hygiene and care and are able to pass valuable information onto patients to provide the foundation for a healthy smile.

Your follow up visits – Maintenance after your treatment phase

Upon the completion of your treatment phase and after we achieve the desired results for you, it’s important to maintain your new healthy smile with regular dental check-ups every 6 months. Maintenance is the key to long-term wellness, and by visiting us at regular intervals we can help prevent dental decay and gum disease from forming. Here at Elite Dental of Staten Island we strive towards total body wellness for each and every one of our patients, ensuring a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
