First Visit

What Will Happen On My First Visit?

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

Scheduling

We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. Please allow approximately 60 minutes for your initial visit. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

We try to stay on schedule to minimize waiting at the time of your appointment. Referral of emergency patients can cause delays to the schedule, and your understanding and patience are very much appreciated.

Office Hours

Saturday through Sunday:   Closed

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, hypertension, taking blood thinners).

We will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite / interferences, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.  Other areas of your mouth will often provide clues that will help determine the best course of treatment.
