We believe your first visit to our West Kelowna dentist office should be extra special. When you enter our office, you will be greeted with a warm smile welcoming you to Health and Beauty Dentistry.

During your dental exam, we will take digital X-rays and photos to examine the health of your gums, tongue, and teeth. By also looking at your medical and dental history, we can identify what can affect your treatment plans. Evaluating your previous dental work will help us develop and suggest treatments.

We are now offering a NEW product for our NEW PATIENTS upon completing the new patient exam and first hygiene appointment.

Our new patients will receive a Free New Electric Toothbrush gift with the completion of the New Patient Experience (new patient exam and 1st hygiene appt with our office). So call us today!

Here’s what to expect at your comprehensive exam:

We will listen to your concerns and take note of any health complications you may have. We will also be taking digital x-rays.
We will be taking digital X-rays and photos to see that status of your oral health. X-rays will help to detect cavities, decaying teeth, and the conditions of your gums.

Unlike film X-rays, digital X-rays emits less radiation and will allow us to zoom in the image. These capabilities of digital X-rays will help us explain abnormalities in your mouth.

During the oral screening, we will be focusing on your soft tissues. This include looking at your tongue, cheek, palette, and throat.

You can choose to opt-in for a quick and painless oral cancer screening that will scan for pre-cancerous and cancerous tissues.

Oral cancer can happen to anyone. Certain factors may put you at risk and identifying them early on is important. With a non-invasive device called the Velscope, we can detect any abnormal tissue in our mouth. Pre-cancerous tissues, if caught early, will also allow for a much more effective prognosis.

Many Canadians suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD).

Symptoms of TMJ are not limited to pain in the chewing muscles, face, jaw, and neck. Patient can also suffer from migraines, headaches, poor posture, vertigo, and tinnitus.

At Health and Beauty Dentistry, Dr. Shauna Palmer offers many effective neuromuscular treatments. We have had much success with TMJ patients in the past.

Your bite affects the position of your jaws and teeth, however a malocclusion (commonly known as a “bad bite”) can have its overarching affects throughout the body. Bite adjustments are important towards treating headaches and redistributing your bite force.
Gum disease is the number one leading cause to tooth loss, bleeding gums, and gum. It can also cause bone shrinkage.

Studies have shown that sensitive gums may increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. This is due to your body’s vulnerability to plaque bacteria. Our periodontal exam can show the health of your gums and together, we can establish preventive care.

We will be looking closely at each tooth and crowding concerns you may have. When you’re teeth is straight, they’re easier to maintain. You’ll also have healthier gums.
At this part of your exam, we will discuss our findings with you. We will offer oral health education that will keep you motivated to maintain a healthy mouth.
