Your initial appointment usually consists of a cleaning, diagnostic x-rays, and a comprehensive examination, wherein we evaluate, diagnose, and review your treatment options. While we would like to complete treatment as soon as possible, please keep in mind that a complex medical history or treatment plan may require further evaluation and a second appointment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your appointment:
- 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., 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 previous provider has taken x-rays, please request that they forward them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they will be taken at our facility.
