Usually your first visit to our office will consist of a consultation, cleaning and x-rays. We then explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Sometimes treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and other appointments to finish treatment that is needed.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- X-rays if applicable (within six months).
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary cards. 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 dental work (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 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.
You can save yourself some time at your first appointment by filling out our patient information sheet in advance.
