New Patient Information
At Bruno Integrative Dentistry, our passion is YOU! We want to help YOU and your smile stay happy and healthy FOREVER!
At Bruno Integrative Dentistry, the experience begins with you. We believe in comprehensive care and taking the time to get to know our patients, their desires and their concerns. With a comprehensive exam, we are able to examine the teeth and study the harmony of the dental system. We are able to take our patients through a journey of their mouths and let them see the things that we see and help them develop a plan for the future to keep them and their teeth as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
Often times people consider cavities as the only dental problem; however, occlusal disease is much more destructive to the overall health of the teeth. If your teeth are colliding and not gliding past each other, there will be increased breakdown and problems. We know that by making the teeth work together in harmony, we can prevent lots of breakdown and dentistry through the years.
Your First Visit
Your first visit to our office will likely be very different from your past dental visits. We want to make sure we get to know you and make you feel comfortable. This is why our appointment starts out in the consultation room where we get to sit face to face and learn a little about you, your concerns and your desires. Then our assistant will take you back to the dental treatment room where she will take a full series of radiographs of your teeth so that Dr. Bruno can fully evaluate all the teeth and bone and make sure there are no problems anywhere in the jaw structures.
Dr. Bruno will then come in to the room and she will do a thorough and comprehensive exam of the muscles of the head/neck, as well as the hard and soft tissues of your mouth. After she has collected all the information she needs, she will then take a series of photographs or your teeth. Most of the time Dr. Bruno does not discuss treatment options with her patients in the dental room. Instead, she will evaluate her findings and plan a periodontal therapy program that is tailored to you and your specific needs so that you can get started on your way to a healthy smile. Within 2 weeks, she will have you back in for a consultation visit where Dr. Bruno will look at the photos of your mouth with you and discuss the options dentistry has for you. Dr. Bruno will help you develop a plan for the future that will keep your teeth as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
Dr. Bruno promises to listen to your concerns and provide you with honest, caring treatment options that fit your overall desires. Dr. Bruno has been trained to look at your mouth as the entry to your whole body. She is able to assess not just the teeth and bones in the jaw but also the airway and the joint. Dr. Bruno believes it is her responsibility to evaluate all the systems of the head/neck to help you be as healthy and pain free as possible. Having the pleasure of seeing patients two times per year allows Dr. Bruno to keep track of changes in her patient’s lifestyle and health and helps her to intercept health problems that may be occurring. Based on our findings we will put together a well-trained team to help you have the best quality of life. We want to help our patients be as healthy as possible while enjoying going to the dentist.
Dental visits can be difficult for some patients. Past experiences or a fear of the unknown can be daunting. We understand your concerns and promise to provide an excellent dental experience with well-trained and knowledgeable team members who treat you like family.
