What is included in a comprehensive dental exam?

A comprehensive dental exam at our Anderson, SC dental office is a thorough oral health evaluation that includes checking all areas of the oral cavity, such as all extraoral structures, intraoral structures, and soft tissues. We recommend receiving a comprehensive dental exam every three years.
