Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Usually, 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 treatment on another day.
During this visit you may complete a “Smile Self Assessment Survey” to better assist our staff in meeting your expectations.
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 completed forms, current proof of insurance card and valid photo ID. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Complete Patient Intake form, including employment details, and Medical History Form.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or financially responsible guardian. All patients over the age of 18 and covered by a parent’s or guardian’s insurance policy must have proof of payment ability from that parent or guardian prior to treatment. Treatment to minors not accompanied by a financially responsible parent or guardian must have proof of payment ability from the financially responsible party, (i.e. credit card , written or oral confirmation from the responsible party granting permission for treatment.)
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 dentist or physician 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.
