Your initial appointment will consist of an thorough examination explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Usually, treatment can be done the same day as the examination. However, previous root canal treatment, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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 examination:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please be sure we have your insurance information prior to your appointment day. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany patients under 15 at all visits.
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 x-rays (within 1-month), 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 films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
