What to Expect
We are always excited to meet new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire, the patient information form, and the financial information form, if you have not previously done so. Also, bring your dental insurance card for us to copy. If your general dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, please remember to bring them with you to your appointment. Your first visit will be a comprehensive examination with the necessary diagnostic x-rays, if not provided, as well as information provided by your dentist, so that your situation can be thoroughly evaluated and the ideal treatment plan can be determined.
The first visit is essentially the collection of data. This leads to a diagnosis and discussion with you about the findings. We will discuss the ideal treatment option(s) with a thorough discussion about benefits, risks and alternatives. We will also explain the procedures involved and the treatment sequence.
Every patient is unique, and we are committed to providing you with high quality periodontal care based on your individual needs. Above all else, we want to make your visit to our office a pleasant experience.
Our Mission Statement:
We practice and stress the concept of optimal dental health, which is the most favorable degree of oral health that you, as a patient, can attain with our help. Our goal is to save as many of your natural teeth as possible for the rest of your life.
