First Visit

Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Usually, treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.

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.
  • Your completed New Patient Forms
  • 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.).


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. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.

Certain medical conditions require a patient to take antibiotics prior to dental treatment—this is often referred to as “pre-medication”. Should one of these conditions exist, we will contact your physician and ask for confirmation as to your need for pre-medication. Since your physician is the health care professional who treats you for these conditions, it is our policy to adhere to his/her instructions.Should the physician not have records relating to the condition we are inquiring about, or if a patient does not have a physician, we pre-medicate our patients as a pre-caution. In most cases,rescheduling treatment will be necessary if pre-medication has not been taken.
