First Visit

Initial appointments generally consist of a Full Mouth Series of X-Rays, a complete exam, and a discussion about your dental needs and options.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • Your insurance information. 

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to dental care.

X-Rays

For your safety and convenience, our office uses state-of-the-art digital x-rays that expose our patients to far less radiation than traditional film.  At your first exam, we will want to take a full-mouth series of x-rays.  This allows us, and you, to see each tooth from multiple angles, and is a very through exam.  We will do this at your initial visit, and not usually again for five years.  At subsequent annual exams, four bite wing x-rays are usually sufficient.
