Live in health and harmony
Dr. Hosters takes great pride in the relationships he has forged with your referring doctor. You can expect to be treated with the same respect and empathy that you have become accustom to with your general dentist. During your initial visit we will gather important information to align your medical and dental history with you current dental goals. Please be prepared to provide our team members with the following critical data:
  • A list of your current medical and homeopathic medications.
  • Any medical conditions that may be of concern prior to a procedure (diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, history of taking drugs for osteoporosis, knee or hip replacement, rheumatic fever, anticoagulant therapy, daily aspirin therapy, etc)

Clinical Exam

Your clinical exam will entail a thorough assessment on bone, gum tissue condition and potential correlations to your general health. Upon completion of your exam, we will educate you on your dental conditions and present treatment options.

X-Rays

If your general dentist has taken prior x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to our office. Many practices have digital x-rays, making it possible to email your records. If there is not sufficient time to arrange for them to be mailed, please pick them up from your dentist and bring them to your new patient consultation. If any additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility and will be forwarded to your referring doctor.

Oral Cancer Screening

As part of our comprehensive exam every patient receives an oral cancer screening. This includes a manual and visual exam as well as a screening with the Velscope.  This unique advanced screening tool uses a blue light to stimulate natural fluorescence in the soft tissues of the mouth.  By using the Velscope, potentially cancerous lesions can become apparent to the dental professional that may not be apparent to the naked eye.  The result is earlier detection of unhealthy lesion leading to earlier and more affective treatment.
