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.

We’ll also show you all the pictures we took so you can see exactly what we see.
