New Patient Appointments

We welcome new patients and hope to make your experience a positive one. Ideally, your new patient exam would begin with a comprehensive exam to create a baseline and give Dr. Lee all the information necessary regarding your oral health. Of course, life often has other plans. If you experience a dental emergency, we are happy to welcome you to our Wilmington dental office.

New Patient Exams

If you have current x-rays (within one year) from a previous dental office, please bring them with you or have them sent to our office. Other helpful documentation such as your insurance card and medication list will also be useful.

New patient exams are an excellent time for you to get to know our team and enjoy a tour of the office. 

New patient exams include:

  • Individual tooth evaluation
  • Periodontal evaluation
  • X-rays
  • Consultation
  • Plenty of time for questions
  • Dental cleaning (if time allows)

Dr. Lee will discuss any conditions he finds along with all of your treatment options.

Emergency Exams

Experiencing a dental emergency can be alarming, especially if you don’t currently have a dentist in Wilmington. We welcome dental emergencies and will help you get out of pain – often on the same day.

  • Medical history
  • X-ray
  • Diagnosis
  • Palliative treatment
  • Follow-up care

Of course, we will welcome you to become a regular patient in our dental office so you can avoid dental emergencies in the future.


We are happy to welcome patients with a referral from another local general dentists or specialists.

Second Opinions

Sometimes, a little more information can give you the confidence you need to make excellent decisions regarding your oral health. If you want a second opinion, give us a call, and we will book an appointment to provide you with accurate information regarding your conditions.
