Your initial appointment will consist of a medical and dental history, radiographs (Xrays) and an examination. The doctor will determine if further treatment is needed. A dental prophylaxis (cleaning) can be scheduled at the same time if there are no obvious problems. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and consultation before treatment is begun.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
Any recent X-rays and records from previous dentist. If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 1 year), you should request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
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.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics, for pre-med.)
