Your first appointment will include a comprehensive oral examination, at which time we’ll explain your diagnosis and treatment options. Depending on the complexity of your case, treatment may be done on the same day. Procedures are performed using local anesthesia, and you will likely be able to drive or return to work without restrictions immediately afterward.
Please eat a full breakfast or lunch as directed, and continue to take all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. If you have a question, please call our office before your appointment.
Please assist us by bringing the following information to your initial visit/consultation:
- Referral slip and any x-rays, if available.
- Dental insurance card and all necessary forms (i.e. employer, insurance carrier, group number, etc.) This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- A completed medical history form, which you can download from the online forms section of this website.
X-rays from your dentist are helpful but not required. We will take x-rays at your initial consultation and throughout treatment. Our office is equipped with the most advanced digital radiography system, which reduces radiation exposure by 90 percent compared with conventional dental x-rays. Please see “Should I be concerned about x-rays?“
