Your First Visit (Dental Exam)

Your general dentist has referred you to our office for a dental exam because he/she believes you have either a specific periodontal concern or a more general periodontal condition which requires special attention.

When you come into our office for the first time, you will be greeted by one of our front office staff. You should have received the initial paperwork in the mail. To ensure your first visit to our office goes smoothly and without delays, please fill out all forms in their entirety and mail the completed forms back to us in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided.  It is important we receive your completed paperwork 48 hours prior to your visit.  Failure to do so could result in the need to reschedule your appointment.  We appreciate you checking in 15 minutes prior to your appointment.  

Once you have been brought back to the examination room, we will review your medical history. Every patient will receive a comprehensive examination including a soft tissue and cancer screening exam from the doctor to determine the complete periodontal status of your mouth. 

After the doctor has had the opportunity to thoroughly evaluate your records and X-Rays, you will meet one-on-one for a private consultation and discuss your proposed treatment options. We place great emphasis on educating our patients on the disease process as well as discussing of different treatment options. This is your opportunity to ask questions of the doctor.  

After your private consultation with the doctor, you will meet with our business office where we will answer any financial questions you have, check insurance coverage, and schedule your treatment. 

Plan on your initial visit to be approximately one hour. There will be a fee for your examination appointment with the specialist.  All minors must be accompanied by a consenting adult.
