First Visit – Important information

 

Getting to know you – Please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment to ensure that you have enough time to complete your medical history forms. Please bring with you:

  • Your referral slip

During your appointment, please share if you have a condition that may be of concern during surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings.

If your previous dentist took x-rays within the past 6-months, please request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please bring them yourself. If not,  we will take them here.

Diagnosis and treatment options – We will thoroughly address any concerns or questions you may have. From there, we will proceed to provide you will a detailed diagnosis and different treatment options. 

Starting treatment – Treatment most often can begin on the same day as your consultation. If not, we will schedule a date (or dates) together for administering the treatment. We will review treatment costs with you.
