First Visit Information
Your initial appointment will usually consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Treatment can sometimes be done or started 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking and the doctors who prescribed them.
- Your completed Patient Registration Form, as well as other forms that you can find on our Patient Registration page,
- And if you have dental insurance, please bring your dental insurance card and information about the individual who the insurance is through, such as their birthday, social security number, and place of employment. 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. 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 previous dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time for your previous dentist to send them, you may be able to pick them up from their office and bring them with you to your appointment with us. If additional x-rays are necessary, we may take digital x-rays at our office.
