As a new patient, your first appointment will consist of a comprehensive oral evaluation and review of your treatment options. We will review your dental history, take necessary x-rays, perform and oral cancer screening, and perform a thorough exam of your teeth and gums. You can think of this appointment as a physical exam for your head and neck!
In an emergency situation, we make every effort to start your treatment on the same day. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require further evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment 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.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. 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.).
If your dentist or physician has 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 to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
