First Visit

What will happen on my first visit?

Please assist us at the time of your initial visit to the office by providing the following information:

  • We will receive a referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist if you have one, and if not, we will take new x-rays as needed.
  • A list of medications you are currently taking (please note that you can fill out your patient registration and medical history form on our website.)
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring any forms or insurance cards with you to the appointment.

Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension).

We will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history, a thorough examination screening for oral cancer and signs of periodontal disease such as periodontal pockets, bone loss, loose teeth, TMJ problems, and bite imbalances.  We will then discuss all significant findings with detailed treatment options and answer any questions that you may have.
