Your initial appointment will consist of a dental cleaning, comprehensive examination and any necessary dental x-rays. If you are not due for a cleaning but need to address a specific problem or concern, your initial appointment will be scheduled with a dentist as a problem focused examination to diagnose and discuss treatment options if necessary.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial visit:
- Any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are currently taking including prescription, over the counter and herbal medications.
- If you have dental insurance, bring your insurance card and or policy information. 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 their initial visit.
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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 1 year), 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.
