Dr. Byron L. Carr and our caring dental team are pleased to welcome new patients to our Temecula dental practice. Our goal is to build lifelong connections while helping you attain a healthy, happy smile for many years to come. 

We understand that meeting a new dentist may be a little nerve-wracking, but please know we are here to support you and provide you with personalized and compassionate dental care of the highest quality. From simple tooth fillings to complex smile rehabilitation, you can rest assured that you’re in the best possible hands! 

What to Expect at Your First Dental Visit 

Before the Appointment 

When you arrive at our Hemet or Temecula dental office, we ask you to fill out forms––or you can complete them online––and we’ll create your patient file. 

We then ask you to wait briefly until Dr. Carr is ready to see you. We’ll then escort you back to one of our regularly-sanitized treatment rooms, where you can sit back and relax in one of our modern, adjustable dental chairs. 

The Oral Health Exam 

Dr. Carr will start your visit by discussing your oral health needs and goals and take some time so you can get acquainted. Typically, new patient appointments require dental x-rays so we can have a complete look at your mouth, including teeth, gums, and bone structures. Dr. Carr will also perform a thorough visual exam of your mouth, which may include doing a periodontal chart to check your gums. 

The Dental Cleaning 

After Dr. Carr does x-rays and looks at your mouth, one of our hygienists will perform a thorough dental cleaning and polish your teeth. The hygienist uses specialized instruments to carefully clean all surfaces of your teeth and along the gumline to remove plaque and tartar. A buildup of plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, so getting routine dental cleanings every six months is ideal for maintaining a healthy smile. 

If Dr. Carr sees any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues, he will address those immediately and create a treatment plan based on your specific needs. Your smile’s health is our priority, and we will always do everything possible to ensure you have the opportunity to reach optimal oral health.
