Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, 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 from your dentist. You may bring any x-rays, however we will be taking our own digital x-rays to help us diagnose and provide the best possible treatment.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or 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 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
A pre-operative consultation appointment is mandatory for patients planning to utilize either IV anesthesia, or minimal oral sedation (Halcion). Please have nothing to eat or drink 8 hours prior to your appointment. You will also need an adult to drive you home.
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 dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. However, we will take additional digital radiographs (x-rays) of your tooth during your visit with us.
