What to Expect
Your first appointment will consist of an evaluation followed by 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 requires a more in-depth evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please help us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of medications you’re presently taking.
- Your medical or dental insurance information, if applicable. This saves time and allows 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.), if you’re on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.), or if you require medication prior to dental cleanings, such as antibiotics.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request to have them forwarded 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.
