Comprehensive Dental Examination
Dr. Fester will explain the exam process and provide an extra-oral examination, which includes an evaluation of the thyroid, lymphatic system in the head and neck region, muscle of mastication, TMJ and skin cancer assessment.
Dr. Fester will then provide an intra-oral cancer examination by evaluating the tongue, cheeks, floor of mouth and back of throat, as well as the salivary glands. Next he will evaluate the occlusion and function, looking at the midline, overbite and over jet, as well as molar classifications. He will look at the movement and guidance of the temporomandibular joint.
Next, Dr. Fester will map your existing dental condition and pathology, including periodontal pocket measurements and recession.
Finally, he will review the necessary radiographs and digital imagery that our dental team takes or obtains from a prior dental provider.
Upon completion of the examination, Dr. Fester will provide you with an overall condition and/or recommendation if any treatment if necessary.

What others say about us
I was a little fuzzy when leaving the office yesterday and it was a couple of hours later when I really looked in the mirror.
Your good and careful work has made a remarkable improvement in the appearance of those bottom teeth. I could hardly believe it, and now will not be so conscious when smiling.
When Mike saw me there in the waiting room he said “Oh, Delores, that is so good”. And, the inside feels very smooth – after all these years!
Thank you for all the excellent work you have done, your kind consideration and your friendship.
Dear Dr. Fester,

Your attention to providing me with an upper partial and lower denture is appreciated. Greetings to everyone on your staff and family!
