Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Most often, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation first and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any CT imaging from your dentist on CD or flash drive if applicable.
- 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.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to dental treatment or if you require antibiotics before standard dental care (i.e. for joint replacements, heart conditions, or immunocompromised patients)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within a few weeks), you may request that they forward them to our office. New x-rays are always taken at the consultation appointment to ensure we know the current condition of your teeth. In many cases we will require 3-D CBCT (Cone-Beam Computed Tomography) imaging to give us highly detailed information about your tooth. This is especially necessary in complex cases such as retreatment and surgical cases.
