Your initial appointment will consist of an examination and review of your dental and medical history forms. Your hygienist will clean and polish your teeth, make sure your teeth and gums are healthy, and check for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay. Once your dentist has completed his exam, he will provide you with a dental consultation, and information about any additional dental treatments you, or your child, may need. During this time, he will also answer any questions you may have. We welcome any questions you may have, and are always available to listen to your concerns.
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.
- 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.
