Your initial appointment consists of an examination necessary x-rays, thorough review of your medical and past dental health and review of your treatment options. You will be given an opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns. Part of treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e pregnancy, diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please have them emailed to yourself. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
