initial consultation

If you are currently taking antibiotics or pain pills, please stop taking them for 8 hours prior to your appointment if possible.  Having these in your system can make diagnosing your tooth more difficult.  After describing the problem that you have been experiencing, a comprehensive examination and digital radiographs will be taken to determine the proper diagnosis of your case. This will be followed by a discussion of treatment alternatives and prognosis.  Once all your questions have been answered and the consent forms signed, we can schedule you for treatment. Your personal health data will be kept private in accordance with HIPAA Privacy regulations.

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

  • Your endodontic referral slip and any X-rays, if your dentist gave you these.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary information or forms, as this will help us to process your claim.

IMPORTANT: a parent or guardian must accompany ALL patients under the age of 18 years of age at the consultation visit.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.)
