What to Expect at Your Holistic Dental Exam

1. Relax & Unwind…

Unlike other dental practices, Green Dentistry’s waiting area is thoughtfully designed to be a relaxing rejuvenating space.

If it’s your first visit to our office, arrive a few minutes early to complete your health history and other paperwork. If it’s not your first visit, you still might want to arrive early to enjoy the refreshing aromatherapy our office is known for! Read more about why we’re the best in SF!

2. High-Tech Digital X-Rays

Your new patient dental exam may include 3D digital X-rays (we recommend them about once a year for most patients). But don’t worry, these aren’t like any X-rays you’ve had taken before! Digital X-rays:

  • Take just seconds and use hardly any radiation
  • Provide a crystal-clear image and aid in the early detection of cavities and gum disease
  • Allow Dr. Patel to accurately place crowns and fillings, leading to long-lasting dental restorations

X-rays are a key component of your holistic and comprehensive dental exam and just part of how we’ll help you achieve lifelong dental health and wellness.

3. Gum Disease Assessment & Oral Cancer Screening

Prevention and early detection through holistic dental care are the keys to lifelong health. Dr. Patel uses advanced technology to conduct minimally-invasive gum disease assessments and oral cancer screenings in just seconds.

The earlier we detect potential issues, the more periodontal treatment options you’ll have and the better the outcomes will be.

4. Thorough Teeth Cleaning

A hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums. They’ll also be able to answer your questions. Not sure what to ask? Our patients often want to know:

  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss recommendations
  • Thoughts on fluoride and mouthwash
  • How to brush and floss effectively
  • Whether an electric toothbrush is right for them
  • How to remove tough stains from their teeth

Your teeth will look and feel amazing with holistic dental care from Green Dentistry!

5. Meet With Dr. Patel & Discuss Your Treatment Plan

Finally, you’ll meet with Dr. Patel to end your dental exam. She’ll discuss her findings and ask you about your health and your health goals. Together, you’ll work to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.
You’ll have plenty of time to ask any questions you have and get the answers you need to make the best decision for your health and smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend 2 cleanings and dental exams every year for most patients.

From start to finish, your dental exam will take about an hour. If it’s your first time visiting our practice, plan to spend a bit more time as you’ll talk with Dr. Patel to discuss your health and smile goals as part of your new patient dental exam.

Fluoride is optional but recommended to help minimize decay and gum disease.

Absolutely! As a holistic dentist, we take pride in creating a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere that’s more like a spa than a traditional dental office. We offer aromatherapy, warm neck wraps, noise-cancelling headphones, and other spa-like amenities to help you relax. But the real difference is our caring team members who are committed to helping you truly enjoy your visit.

Your Comfort Matters to Us

Our Union Square dentist in San Francisco ensures our office is a place where you can relax and put your health and wellness first, allowing yourself recovery and restoration. We provide a number of spa-like services to our patients in order to relieve discomfort and improve relaxation, such as:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Neck wraps and heated blankets
  • Healing with essential oils and crystals
