Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Treatment can often be started at the same appointment; however, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require careful evaluation and further appointments may need to be made for treatment to be carried out.
Please provide the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral letter and any X-ray films if your dentist has given them to you.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 at the consultation.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are taking any medication (e.g. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. We often have to take additional images at your consultation appointment in order to make an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
