Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Most often, treatment can be done 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:
- Your referral slip from your dentist and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the card and any 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 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.) 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) of your teeth or area in question, you may request that they forward them to our office. It will be necessary for us to take several x-rays before, during and at the end of the procedure. These are required to ensure proper treatment and documentation of the procedure as well as facilitate the processing of insurance claims.
