First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of any necessary x-rays, diagnosis and a consultation regarding your treatment options. If your treatment plan calls for a root canal, we will either schedule another appointment for treatment or possibly perform the procedure on your first visit. 

If you are in extreme pain, we will do our best to see you, on most occasions, the same day that you call. We will make every effort to relieve your pain through emergency treatment, and then schedule you for the necessary follow-ups.

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, bring your current insurance card. If you don’t have one, we will need the subscriber number, group number, and phone number. This will save time and allow us to help you in the processing of your claim.

IMPORTANT:  All patients under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may possibly require pre-medication with antibiotics (i.e. artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.)


If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, please have them forwarded to our office as they may be helpful in our diagnosis. A digital radiograph can be emailed to us. Digital radiographs will be taken at the time of your examination even if your referring doctor has already taken them.
