Your first appointment with us is necessary to thoroughly diagnose and evaluate your condition and discuss treatment options. Following this initial consultation, we will schedule your treatment. For those patients who are in pain, we may initiate treatment at the first appointment or if necessary refer you to an appropriate specialist.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any referral form and any xrays
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary forms.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the first visit.
Please advise us if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to any treatment (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, Fosamax or other Bisphosphonates for treating bone loss, etc.)
Please plan on arriving at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow proper time to fill out all necessary information.
