First Periodontal Visit
Your first visit will be a thorough evaluation and a discussion of our findings. Education about periodontitis is at the heart of what we do. It is a critically necessary step in your success combating the disease and maintaining your teeth for life. So that we can properly prepare you, we typically do not schedule initial exams and treatment on the same day; we want to make sure you have all the information you need, and that all of your questions are answered prior to any treatment. Please be aware that there is a fee associated with your first visit.
Preparation for your first visit
Please complete your patient registration form, bring it with you to your first appointment. It is important that you list any medications, allergies or other pertinent information that could affect your care. PLEASE NOTE: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.
Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern PRIOR to your initial visit (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension).
Please continue to see your general dentist while undergoing treatment at our office so that your restorative needs continue to be addressed.
We are available to respond to your concerns and encourage you to ask questions at any time. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
