Your initial appointment usually will consist of a complete examination including necessary x-rays and review of your medical history. Routine treatment plans are usually presented at this appointment, however, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment options. Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial appointment:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, it is important that you 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.
