What we offer
Our dentists at 1311 Jackson Ave Dental are dedicated to providing a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth. Your dental consultation in Long Island City will lead to a treatment plan that is designed and tailored to your unique needs.
At our practice, we offer three different types of consultations.
A thorough consultation with our dentists is actually just another name for a dental check up. During the visit, we will take x-rays, do the exam, clean your teeth, and answer any questions you may have.
Alternatively, you may not need a comprehensive evaluation if your last check up was recent but you have a specific focused problem. A limited consultation is when you want to focus on one particular dental problem.
Perhaps you went to another dental office and they recommended to you a treatment plan. You're not sure if that is the right decision and you want someone to take a second look at it. One of our dentist in Long island City can give you a second opinion..
