Dr. Jonathan Nelson
Please watch the video that I (Dr. Nelson) put together for you. Yep, that's right, I enjoy working with technology so I created, directed, and starred in this movie! I'm planning to make more videos in the future too in order to help you become more informed and to show you my practice, how I work, and what my treatment philosophies are.

Comprehensive Exams in Missoula, MT

Your comprehensive exam will include photographs of your teeth, radiographs (x-rays), diagnosis of gum health, oral cancer screening, finding decay/cavities, charting your existing dental work, and specialized tests on individual teeth as needed.  After the exam, we will work with you to develop the best treatment plan for your needs based on your values and lifestyle. We’ll also show you all the pictures we took so you can see exactly what we see.  

Interpreting Your Photos

These high-resolution pictures are something that not many other dental offices offer.  Some don't take any photos, and some will take low-resolution zoomed in photos with an intraoral camera, but I believe that in order for you to make informed decisions about having treatment done, you need to see what's going on clearly.  Here's an example of some of the typical photos I take on one of my patients:
