Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Treatment is generally performed on the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require a preliminary evaluation and a second appointment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A referral card and X-rays from your referring dentist
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office via e-mail at [email protected] . Our office is fully digital and additional x-rays low dose digital radiographs will be taken as needed.
