Borkan Family Dentistry provides complete examination services

When you will come to our office for a comprehensive examination, Borkan family dentistry will discuss with you your medical history to ensure we cater to any medical problems you may have. Necessary radiographs (x-rays) will be taken, and a doctor will examine all of your teeth for sides of decay, your gums and tissues for signs of disease, and address any overall conditions/concerns you may have with your mouth and personalize a treatment system that fits your needs.
