What to Expect
We are always excited to meet new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Please take the time to fill out our Patient Registration forms prior to your appointment. Also, bring your dental insurance card for us to copy. If your general dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, please remember to bring them with you to your appointment. Your first visit will be a comprehensive examination with the necessary diagnostic x-rays, if not provided, as well as information provided by your dentist. This will allow us to thoroughly evaluate your situation and determine your ideal treatment plan. Often, we consult with your restorative dentist to work as a team on your behalf.
The first visit is essentially the collection of data. This leads to a diagnosis and discussion with you about the findings. We will discuss the ideal treatment option(s) with a thorough discussion about benefits, risks and alternatives. We will also explain the procedures involved and the treatment sequence.
Every patient is unique, and we are committed to providing you with high quality periodontal care based on your individual needs. Above all else, we want to make your visit to our office a pleasant and informative experience.
