Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive dental examination with the doctor. He will review your medical and dental history and gather the information needed to document and discuss your oral health and conditions. The doctor will check your teeth and supporting gums, your bite relationship, your jaw joint and muscles. We take a series of digital photographs and radio-graphs, as well as a virtual scan of your dental arches to gather the needed baseline information.
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. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
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.).
