Your initial appointment will consist of any necessary X-rays, diagnosis and a consultation regarding your treatment options. If your treatment plan calls for a root canal, we will schedule another appointment for treatment. If you are in extreme pain, we will do our best to see you, on most occasions, the same day that you call. We will make every effort to relieve your pain through emergency treatment, and then schedule you for the necessary follow-ups.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any X-rays if applicable
- A list of medications you are presently taking
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
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, etc.) or if you are on any medications. If you have a heart condition or artificial joint your medical doctor may want you to take antibiotics prior to dental work and cleanings. Please check with your doctor to see what they recommend.
If your dentist or physician has taken X-rays, please have them forwarded to our office as they may be helpful in our diagnosis. A digital radiograph can be emailed to us. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
