Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination, updating any radiographs as needed, and a conversation about your treatment options. Usually, treatment can be done or started 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, make sure to bring your insurance card and 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 dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. We are happy to help with coordination of care with your previous providers and can request these on your behalf with a signed record release form. If any additional x-rays are necessary, we will update them for you at your visit.
