Welcome to our practice. Here’s what to expect at your initial appointment. When you come in, we’ll ask you to fill out a patient questionnaire and medical history form. You can download these from the For Patients page of our website and fill them out at home, if that’s more convenient for you.

These forms are important. The information you provide helps us determine the course of your treatment. We need to know your entire health history, including allergies, sensitivity to anesthetics, and long-term medications.

If you have dental insurance, please have the following information available at the time of your appointment:

  • Photo Identification
  • Dental Insurance Card
  • The name of the insurance carrier
  • The subscriber’s Social Security Number and/or ID number
  • The subscriber’s date of birth

Plan for the initial appointment to take about an hour. We will examine your teeth, gums, jaw alignment and soft tissues. We may take X-rays. The exam also includes an oral cancer analysis. Generally, a cleaning will be done at this visit as well.

If you need to be pre-medicated prior to treatment, please notify us when setting up your appointment. You must let us know if this condition exists. If in doubt, please contact your physician.

We look forward to meeting you.
