Your First Visit
The initial visit involves a review of your medical history. When you share your history, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform our office if you have experienced a recent hospitalization or surgery, or have recently been ill.
Also tell us the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Let us know about any changes in your health or medications. This information will help us to select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
We encourage regular checkups for individuals ages three and up. Regular checkups are important to:
- Check for problems you might not see or feel
- Find early signs of decay
- Treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam by the doctor. During the oral exam, one of our doctors will check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue, and inspect your existing fillings and restorations, because constant pressure from chewing, grinding, or clenching can cause them to wear away, chip, or crack.
Regular checkup appointments typically take about 60 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
