Your first visit with us is extremely important. We take great care learning about your goals in treatment and addressing any concerns you may have. During this visit we will complete a comprehensive exam. We will also ask to have updated radiographs taken if you do not have any to provide. We will then discuss a treatment plan, which could range from a simple cleaning to a more extensive procedure, depending on your needs. It is in our best interest to provide you with the best, most comprehensive, and conservative treatment plan.
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 medications you are presently taking.
- An updated medical history.
- 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 you currently have a dental appliance (retainers, occlusal guards, mouth guards, or sleep apnea devices) please bring these with you to your visit. We will take time to examine them and clean them professionally for you in our ultrasonic cleaner.
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.
