First Visit

Welcome_KatyAt the first examination appointment you will be greeted by our receptionist and be asked to fill out a patient acquaintance and health history form that will give us information about you medical and dental health.  If your family dentist has provided you with any x-rays, we would like you to bring them with you at this first appointment along with any referral slip.  If you come as a second opinion, you do not need a referral slip.



The treatment plan: in most situations a detailed treatment plan can be made at this initial visit. However in more complex cases a more detailed review of the records need to be made and treatment options determined.  In those occasions a consultation appointment will be scheduled for a later date.

By the end of the initial examination or consultation 

appointment, the patient and parents will understand:

• Whether treatment is indicated and the most effective time to start treatment;

• The treatment plan and other options of treatment;

• The length of treatment time and the expected cost for treatment.
