Palms Dental
Dr. Christopher Stock

Will I get my teeth cleaned at my first appointment?

Our Palms Dental team does not perform a dental cleaning at a patient’s first dental appointment. The initial appointment allows Dr. Stock to meet the patient, perform a thorough oral health evaluation, and develop a treatment plan. 

Our Comfortable Treatment Rooms

When you arrive at our Bradenton dental office, we will offer you complimentary comforts, including a blanket or neck pillow. It’s important for us to make sure you are relaxed and at ease during your visit. Our treatment rooms are equipped with modern, adjustable dental chairs and large-screen TVs.

Your First Dental Exam

The oral health evaluation includes a visual exam, digital dental x-rays, and intraoral images of the teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues. These images give your dentist a detailed view of your mouth, allowing us to identify any underlying signs of decay or disease. 

Using our digital monitors, Dr. Stock can show you images of your teeth and gums, enlarging or adjusting the images to highlight specific characteristics of your smile. Throughout the dental exam, Dr. Stock screens for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other concerns.

Whether you are a routine visitor or it’s been a while since your last dental exam, Dr. Stock is here to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Palms Dental welcomes new and familiar faces to our dental office, and we serve individuals from across Manatee County.
