First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a one or two-appointment examination and consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done 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:

  1. The new patient registration form
  2. Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable
  3. A list of medications you are presently taking
  4. If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary information. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

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.).

X-Rays

If your previous dentist has taken recent radiographs (within 6 months to one year), you may request that they are available to you or forwarded to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility. A full mouth, panoramic radiograph or a dental CT scan is important to complete a comprehensive exam.
