It is entirely your decision when or if you choose to proceed with the recommended treatment. No guilt-trips or pressure -- guaranteed!
For patients who choose to proceed with treatment, we are often able to offer you convenient same day service which can save you time out of your busy schedule.
Once you have decided that Cornelia Dental is the right office for you, we highly recommend you allow us to perform a comprehensive dental exam.
This allows us to perform all of the necessary diagnostic procedures (oral cancer screening, dental x-rays, intraoral photos, periodontal charting) to be able to completely assess your dental health and treat your specific individual dental needs.
Your comprehensive exam visit with us includes:
- A review of your complete dental and medical history forms.
- Complete X-rays of your teeth and mouth.
- A comprehensive oral exam -the doctor will make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, and check for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay.
If you have been receiving regular dental care at another office, you may want to combine this visit with your regular dental cleaning.
One of our doctors will listen to any dental concerns you may have and discuss any treatment options.
If you have treatment needs, we will offer you our best solutions and have one of our team members go over the cost of treatment with you and present you with the information you need to make your own decision about your dental treatment.

Our job is to tell you what we believe you need and your job is to decide how you wish to proceed.
We are committed to providing affordable preventive dental care to our family of patients. Since many of our patients do not have access to affordable dental insurance, we designed a preventive in-house dental plan that is designed to allow you to receive the preventive dental care you deserve. We have found that our patients who participate in our Habersham Dental Advantage Plan are often able to avoid many of the high costs of neglecting preventive dental care by having regular professional dental cleanings and necessary diagnostics to detect dental disease in its earliest and least expensive stages.
