Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive exam and consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. This appointment is usually scheduled for 2 hours. Please allow ample time in your schedule for this appointment. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at least 1 week prior to your appointment:
- Please fill out the Online Patient Registration Form.
- Your previous dental records and any X-rays if applicable. You can print the form on our website to send to your previous dentist.
- The registration and medical history forms found on the next page.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card . 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 this appointment (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 1 year for bite wing xrays or 3 years for a full set or panorex), you need to request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office or have them emailed to us from your previous office. If additional films are necessary, they will be taken at our office.
