Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Often, treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation. Please let us know if this is important to you when planning for your first appointment with us.
However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. We can also tell you about sedation options available.
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. If you are bringing your child for his/her 1st dental visit, check out out more info from our “What We Do” and “Kids Dentistry” section.
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.
The time reserved for your appointment is set aside especially for you. We understand that unexpected circumstances can occur. However, if a cancellation is necessary, we do require 24 hours notice (a full business day), so that the time reserved for you, can be made available to someone else who has been waiting for an appointment. In the event that insufficient advanced notice has been made, there may be a $150 cancellation fee incurred.
