Dental examinations are used to detect early signs of concerns including cavities, oral cancer, gum disease, and more.

Following the dental examination, patients will usually receive a dental cleaning.

The typical cost of a dental examination is approximately $100 - $300, but since it is considered preventative care, all or part of the cost of these examinations are usually covered by dental insurance.
