What to Expect
All patients will receive an examination in order to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Please bring the names of all current medications to your first appointment and inform us of any changes that may occur. Some medications or Health Conditions may require a consultation with your medical doctor prior to dental treatment. Please understand that this may at times delay dental treatment for your health and safety. Some items to consider are pregnancy, uncontrolled or high blood pressure readings,untreated heart disease, diabetes, heart murmurs, blood thinners, and Kidney or liver disease. If you think you fall into these categories, consider talking to your physician first, to see if there are special measures they recommend for you. We request that our pregnant patients obtain a consent from your OB/GYN prior to your appointment to avoid any delay or limitations in your treatment.
New Patients seeking comprehensive care will receive a comprehensive exam with x-rays in order to indicate the type of cleaning needed for that individual and what type of restorative treatments are indicated. Emergency exams will be performed for patients with pain or swelling requiring urgent care or persons who have a concern that needs to be addressed prior to their next scheduled visit. Radiographs may be necessary at emergency visits to diagnose the area of concern.
Patients are responsible for payment of services the day they are rendered. Any payment options will be discussed during the presentation of the treatment plan and which services qualify.
New Patient Forms can be located on our website or we will gladly offer a paper version at our office when you arrive. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time in order to establish your computer record and verify insurance.
