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, 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:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays, if applicable. Please note that we take our own x-rays to provide you with a comprehensive diagnosis.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance information. 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 at the consultation visit.
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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental treatment (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office as they may be helpful in our diagnosis. 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.
