Best to ask your dentist. Some do more than others on the first check up. A lot will depend on how your ds responds to the dentist and to the experience.
In our experience, the basics are a visual exam, probe for cavities (with the little metal pick), and x-rays. Then a follow-up appointment is made for cleaning and any further work if necessary.
Good luck!
