Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. All consultations and treatments are provided in a private room to allow complete privacy with the doctor and assistant. Most treatments can be completed during your initial appointment. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment at a later time.
Please assist us by providing the following information before or at the time of your consultation:
- A current/valid photo ID.
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are currently taking.
- Medical or Dental insurance information. 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 surgery (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.)
X-Rays and Cone Beam/3d Scans
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within the last 2 weeks), you may request that they forward them to our office. Additional films may be necessary to provide you with a thorough diagnosis. Your treatment may also require a 3D image that would be taken during your consultation.
