Your First Dental Visit
You can expect your first appointment to take about one hour and 20 minutes.

After having some X-rays and photos taken of your mouth, Dr. Neelima Ravi, DMD, FAGD will perform a thorough exam. If time allows, you’ll then be seen by a hygienist for a cleaning, and then Dr. Neelima Ravi, DMD, FAGD will go over your ongoing care plan before you leave.
