The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) defines a "comprehensive dental and oral exam" as "an extensive evaluation and the recording of all extraoral, intraoral and soft tissues."

The CDA recommend that all new patients have a comprehensive dental exam on their first visit, and established patients undergo this exam every 3 years. 

Overview of a Comprehensive Dental Exam:

  • Extensive medical and dental history
  • Periodontal exam (gum and bones supporting the teeth)
  • Dental Exam (teeth)
  • Head and Neck Cancer Exam (soft tissues of mouth, throat and surrounding structures)
  • Occlusal Exam (Bite analysis)
  • TMJ Exam (jaw joints)
  • Radiographic Exam (x-rays and various scans)
