If you are scheduled for a routine visit, your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive oral exam, including an oral cancer screening, cleaning, and all necessary x-rays.
However, if you are scheduled for a problem focused visit, your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. In most cases, treatment can be performed 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 first visit:
- A list of your current medications
- If you have dental insurance, bring the insurance card with you. 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 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.)
If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If the x-rays are more than one year old, we may need to update them. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
