First Visit

First Visit

If you are scheduled for a routine visit, your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive oral exam, including an oral cancer screening, cleaning, and all necessary x-rays.

However, if you are scheduled for a problem-focused visit, your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. In some cases, treatment may be performed 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 prior to your first visit

  • A list of your current medications
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the insurance card with you. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 during the first visit.

X-Rays

If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If the x-rays are more than one year old, we may need to update them. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
