First Dental Visit
Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive initial exam as well as a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be performed 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 note that our office does not double book patients. Appointment time is reserved exclusively for each patient. This allows the doctor to stay focused on each patient’s specific needs with minimal distractions. Therefore a missed appointment greatly affects the office. We take pride in being able to offer this level of dental care.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Previous X-rays (if applicable)
- A list of your current medical prescriptions
- If you have dental insurance, please be sure to bring all necessary documentation. 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 treatment (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.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, 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.
