When you arrive for your first visit please be prepared to complete an insurance and health information form that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will also ask you to fill out several forms that will also help you get acquainted with our office. Your initial evaluation will last approximately one hour. We take the necessary radiographs and perform a thorough examination of your teeth and soft tissue, as well as review your medical history, provide oral hygiene instructions along with suggestions to help care for your teeth. In most cases, we will also clean your teeth and provide an evaluation that will outline existing dental problems and proposed treatments.
We will discuss all necessary treatment with our patients. Optional treatment, like cosmetic dentistry, may be mentioned, but always with a clear distinction between what is necessary for good dental health and what is considered optional. We will prioritize needed treatment from most urgent to least urgent, and will help you understand what needs to be done and why. We have informational pamphlets and a library of videotapes on all dental procedures for your additional information.
