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. If the tooth in question has already had a root canal, a consultation appointment with a possible Cone Beam CT will be scheduled before any treatment. Additionally, a complex medical history or treatment plan may 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:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- Dental insurance information
- A completed Confidential Patient Health History form
- A completed HIPAA Consent form
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 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 medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
During your initial visit, at least one x-ray will be taken in our office to ensure an accurate diagnosis. If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office, however we will need to take a diagnostic image during your first visit.
