First Visit

Your initial appointment usually will consist of a comprehensive examination and review of your treatment options.

The areas of focus will include:

  • Medical and Dental History
  • Check for periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Diagnostic digital x-rays, intra oral pictures or photographs
  • Check for cavities/carious lesions
  • Assessment of your occlusion (bite)
  • Assessment of your Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
  • Oral cancer screening                 

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your appointment:

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable
  • A list of medications you are presently taking
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary information
  • This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims for reimbursement 

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may require pre-medication (antibiotics) prior to your dental appointment, i.e.:

  • Joint replacements
  • Artificial heart valves
