Your initial appointment usually will consist of a thorough examination, any necessary radiographs and photographs and review of your treatment options.
Often, treatment can be started 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- Necessary completed dental insurance forms, if applicable. 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.).
Forms and Registration
If you want to help speed up the process of your first visit, you can complete our Patient Registration Forms online and your information will be waiting for you at our office upon your arrival.
If your previous dentist or physician has recently 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 with you to your appointment. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
