Your initial appointment will allow us to begin to know you and your dental condition. It may consist of a preliminary examination, x-rays if needed and possibly a cleaning. At that time we will schedule our initial, comprehensive new patient exam. This is where we thoroughly examine your entire mouth, explain what we see, answer any questions you may have and review what your treatment options may be.
Of course, if there is an emergency situation, we will always get you out of pain first, then later proceed with the routine procedures.
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, 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 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 x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
