Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Depending upon the complexity of your case and the doctor’s recommendation we usually begin treatment at the initial visit unless otherwise requested at the time of scheduling.
Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your visit:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays
- Your dental insurance and ID numbers. This will save time and allow us to estimate your patient responsibility.
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 additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
