First Visit

What will happen on my first visit?

  • Our examination process begins with a thorough overview of your medical, dental and social history.
  • From there we will obtain photographs of your dentition for our records.
  • A thorough examination of your oral cavity and periodontal status is completed.
  • We will supplement X-rays from your dentist as needed for diagnosis.
  • A comprehensive discussion regarding your needs and eventual treatment.

Please assist us at the time of your initial visit to the office by providing the following information:

  • A most recent list of medications.

  • If you are diabetic – a recent HbA1C % is necessary.

  • If you have dental insurance, please bring any forms or insurance cards with you to the appointment.

Please Note: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension).

We will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.
