your First dental Visit
Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Usually, treatment can be done or started 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of all medical conditions and 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.).
Did you know? Many medications( such as high blood meds, anti-depessives, anti-anxiaty, anti-allergics…) can cause dry mouth and rampant caries!!!!
Radiographs or X-Rays
If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office, via email.
If there is not enough time, you can pick them up and bring them to our office.
If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our dental office.
