First Visit

What to Expect

We always look forward to meeting new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire, the patient information form, and the financial information form, if you have not previously done so. Please take all routine medications prior to your visit, if applicable. Please do not take medication for discomfort for at least 4 to 6 hours prior to your appointment.

All patients under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Please bring the following items with you to your first visit.

  • Your dental and medical insurance cards for us to copy
  • PCP referral if required by your medical insurer
  • A written referral or x-rays, if your dentist has provided them
  • A list of your current medications

Your first visit will be a comprehensive examination and assessment of your case, including a review of information provided by your dentist. If necessary, diagnostic x-rays will be taken, so that your situation can be thoroughly evaluated and the ideal treatment plan can be determined. Your doctor will discuss your diagnosis, explain procedures and sedation options, and create a treatment plan that best fits your individual needs. Any questions you may have will be addressed at this time.

Please speak with the doctor about any concerns you have regarding your care, including sedation. If you have a medical condition that may be a concern prior to your visit such as diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatic fever, artificial joints or heart valves, etc., please let us know before your appointment. If you require antibiotics for any existing conditions please contact our office prior to your visit.

We consider it an honor to care for your oral surgery needs and greatly appreciate the trust you place in us to do so. We will do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Every patient is unique, and we are committed to providing you with high-quality care based on your individual needs.
