Your initial appointment will consist of a general health evaluation, a complete dental examination, any necessary radiographs and a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation, especially in cases of discomfort. Often, other appointments will be offered to provide treatment. This allows the patient to study and discuss their options and costs prior to appointing.
Please assist us by bringing the following information to your first visit.
A list of medications you are presently taking.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves, artificial joints, or are taking aspirin or any blood thinning medications.
If you have dental insurance, bring any information, or forms you have, and your insurance card. This will save time and facilitate processing any claims..
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
If a previous dentist has taken recent radiographs (x-rays) within the last 18 months, please let us know so we can request copies of them to be sent to our office. Any other radiographs will be taken on an as needed basis at the time of your appointment.
