Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of concerns or discussion points regarding your teeth and smile
- Any X-rays 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 practice if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy etc.) or require special precautions prior to dental treatment. Please inform us if you are taking Bisphosphonates (taken to strengthen bones and reduce risk of fractures) as these can have a big bearing on your dental treatment.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our practice. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our practice. Your previous practice may charge for these. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
