Brentwood, CA Dentist - Robert J. Freitas II, DDS
Most often, we see new patients for a regular checkup appointment. At this appointment we will do a thorough exam, including charting your existing dental condition, oral cancer screening, taking or reviewing x-rays and going over any concerns you might have. Most often a cleaning is done at this appointment and many times it will be done by Dr. Freitas (he feels like it's a great opportunity to get to know you and your teeth while letting you get to know him). Expect this appointment to take over an hour for adults so we have time to do the job right. This is not a corporate chain office where you are herded in and out. Kids and teens appointments are usually a little shorter.
Other times we see you for a specific issue, be it on an emergency or second opinion. If you are in pain, let us know and we will try and get you in same day. For times we aren't in the office, our after hours emergency line (talk or text) is 925.240.3308.
A third type of visit is one of our favorites. We love getting the chance to help with your child's first dental visit. These appointments can go many different ways and our goal is to make it a HAPPY appointment. For some this is as simple as trying to sit in the chair and look at all of our cool tools to help keep the sugar bugs away. Sometimes we will get your child rescheduled for a cleaning or treatment if needed, sometimes, if their needs are significant and we feel they would best be treated by a specialist that we feel will be a good fit. We are blessed to have so many great pediatric dentists to work with for kids who require more than we can comfortably provide. Our thought is if we can't provide a positive treatment, we will make sure you child gets one. We do hope it is with us as nothing is as rewarding as watching your child grown up (in six month increments at the very least).
Our goal is to treat you main concern to the utmost. We like to focus on smile health and preventative care. We truly believe the best smile you can have in many cases is the smile you were born with. Knowing that dental needs to need to be addressed, we prefer to work with you as conservatively as possible to achieve you goals.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today. We look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve.
