First Visit

We are delighted to welcome you to our practice and are pleased that you chose us to serve your dental needs.

During your initial appointment, we will strive to get to know you as a patient, perform diagnostic examination and x-rays, and review your treatment options. In some cases, treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide the best care.

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;
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary information (for example a card or letter from your Insurance Company). 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 for a first 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, allergies, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).

If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, 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.
