First Visit

Our staff will assist you in the scheduling of your initial visit.  Your appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options.  Root Canal Therapy, if scheduled in advance, can be  the same day as the consultation if no prior endodontic treatment has been preformed on the tooth. However, a complex medical history or prior endodontic treatment will 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 dental insurance, please bring your insurance card.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at all visits.

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.)

X-Rays

If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office.  If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
