Your dentist may refer you to our office for an initial consultation to determine your diagnosis and treatment options or may refer you for root canal treatment on the first appointment. A complex medical history,treatment plan or history of prior root canal treatment on the tooth may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (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, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
You may bring recent x-ray films taken by your dentist or have them sent to our office.We usually take our own x-rays as well in our office.
