The first visit establishes a vital foundation for our relationship, so our goal for the initial appointment is to get to know you better. Initially, we will gather important background information about your medical and dental history along with your personal dental needs and wants.
Appropriate dental images will be taken and the doctor will perform a thorough examination assessing the current condition of all teeth and tissue. We will then discuss any findings and your treatment options so that together we can develop a customized treatment plan that is right for you.
Should you have dental benefits, please bring this information with you. Being prepared will ensure we have all the necessary information to provide the best dental care to you.
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:
- NEW PATIENT FORMS (Click to download)
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of 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.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, 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 x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
