Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, if a patient has a complex medical history or complex dental treatment plan, a second appointment may be necessary.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip from your referring dentist and any X-rays you may have been given.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please fill out the Patient Registration Form, which can be found on this website.
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 surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, 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. Please note that our office takes digital x-rays,meaning that the radiation dose is about 90% less than conventional dental x-rays. This provides us with a high resolution image for helping us with your diagnosis while dramatically reducing your radiation exposure.
