Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive dental and gum exam, oral cancer screening, and X-rays. We’ll also have time set aside for our doctors to talk with you about your dental goals and needs, and to answer any questions you have. We will then form treatment options best suited for you. If you have any questions about your teeth or a potential treatment, please ask! We want to give you as much information as you desire, so you can make the best choice for you regarding care.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your appointment:
- 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 previous 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.
