Your first appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Time allowing, we will make every effort to complete your endodontic treatment that same day. However, an extensive medical history review and complex cases (retreatments/apicoectomies) usually require a second appointment to provide treatment.
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 proof of insurance and your drivers license. 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.
ALERTS: Please alert the office if you have a special medical condition which requires you to pre-medicate prior to treatment such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our office via email [email protected]. However, we are legally required to take our own films in making a diagnosis. Any films sent or brought to us will be utilized for comparative diagnostic aides.
Sedation: Some patients need a little extra help achieving a relaxed state. Nitrous-Oxide “laughing gas” is available when needed to increase your comfort. There is an additional fee for this service. If you would like more information about this option, please inquire prior to treatment.
In addition: Other amenities provided to enhance your comfort includes pillows, blankets, and Direct T.V. in each operatory to watch during your treatment. You are also welcome to bring your own music device with headphones to listen to.
