Your First Visit

During your first visit to Talton Dental, Dr. Talton will ask you about your medical and dental history.  He will then thoroughly examine your mouth for dental decay, gum disease, and conditions relating to the bone or occlusion. Each exam also includes a screening for oral cancer.

At this time, if problem areas are discovered, treatment options and fees will be discussed in detail. When outlining a treatment plan, we will always inform you of all costs beforehand.  Charges are payable at the time of treatment, and you may use cash, check, credit card or Care Credit payments. If special arrangements are needed, please call our financial coordinator before the treatment is provided.
