As your preferred Lake Oswego dental care provider, we make sure that at Dental Arts & Wellness, every visit to our office is streamlined and stress free. Upon arrival, we will give you a tour of our office to familiarize you with our practice, and then our team will help you with the registration process to make sure that you get the most out of your time with Dr. Yamaguchi.

For adults, we reserve 90 minutes for a complete exam that includes the following:

  • Review of health history, medical history, dental plans, and goals
  • X-rays and imaging
  • Oral cancer screening via OralID™ immunofluorescence & visual exam
  • Hygiene evaluation (gum and bone health check)
  • Microscopic cavity check and photographs

Lake Oswego dentist Dr. Yamaguchi will walk you through her findings and work closely with you to create a dental plan designed to meet your unique oral health goals.

Children’s appointments are typically shorter. As long as the child allows it, the appointment includes an interview, exam, x-rays, and cleaning in 60 minutes.
