Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. We strive to offer treatment the same day as the consultation if possible. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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:
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring your dental insurance card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Your referral slip if applicable.
- Photo id
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
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 and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. Please be aware that we will be taking our own x-ray in addition. In order to properly diagnose and treat endodontic concerns, an x-ray from a special angle is required. We use digital x-ray technology to ensure the lowest amount of radiaton exposure.
