One of our team members will walk you back to one of our modern operatories equipped with high-quality dental tools and TV monitors for viewing and explaining x-rays or diagnoses. One of our highly skilled dental hygienists will take x-rays and give your teeth a cleaning. Then, Dr. Korkus will meet with you and conduct a thorough oral examination while getting to know you and better understanding your wants and needs for your oral health. If any issues are discovered during the exam, Dr. Korkus will be happy to explain what they are, answer any questions you might have, and recommend a personalized treatment plan.


Along with daily brushing and flossing, it’s recommended that every 6 months you receive a professional cleaning to prevent tooth decay and damage. Clean teeth are crucial for overall oral health.


Dr. Korkus and his team are very knowledgeable and understand the complexities of dentistry. Oral exams are essential for discovering any issues that may or may not cause pain or discomfort.


Tooth positioning and growth can sometimes cause oral discomfort or pain. X-rays are the best way for our team to spot any abnormalities or issues that could be problematic.
