Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive evaluation with our Hygienist, as well as the Doctor, explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. It also includes an oral cancer screening, necessary x-rays, periodontal evaluation , as well as a cleaning if your gums are healthy. We welcome new patient emergencies, but will reschedule your comprehensive for another visit once we have gotten you out of pain. Consultatons are also welcome if you would just like to meet the Doctor and discuss anyone of our many srevices to see if you are the right candidate.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial visit:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. 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.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
