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:
- Your referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist. (It is possible we may have to take our own x-rays*)
- 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.
- Also, if you have medical insurance, please bring that with you as well, we can help you file with medical as they sometimes cover surgeries.
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 and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.
*Sometimes x-rays from the referring dentist is not very clear. In order for us to diagnose and proper treatment, we may have to take x-rays in our office.
**For all implant consultations, patient is required to pay for CT Scan in our office regardless if X-rays were done by another office. In order to ensure proper diagnoses and treatment, we require taking our own digital X-Ray.
