We are so happy that you have decided to schedule an appointment with our office! We would like to share with you a little bit about what to expect at your first visit. We will perform a comprehensive oral examination, which includes a complete series of digital x-rays, intra-oral photos, an oral cancer screening, and a gum tissue evaluation. We will use all the information collected during the exam to provide you with a complete diagnosis and discuss your treatment options. If you are in extreme pain, we will make every effort to relieve your pain through emergency treatment that same day and schedule you for the necessary follow-ups.
Please bring the following information with you to your first visit:
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- Your referral slip and any X-rays, if applicable
If you have dental insurance, please let us know ahead of time so we can obtain your dental benefits prior to the appointment. At the time of the appointment, please bring your current insurance card with you. This allows us to provide you with the best explanation of what your insurance benefits include and what costs may be associated with your treatment.
PLEASE NOTE: All patients under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during the entire initial visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, etc.) or if you are on ANY medication (e.g. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
