Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. If scheduled in advance, 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 correspondences from your dentist.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring a copy of your card and the policy holders information (DOB and ID number). This will save time and allow us to 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.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent digital x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office via email. If there is not enough time, we will contact your general dentist and request that they send them over. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
