Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough exam to gather all the information necessary for a detailed consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Most patients that are referred to a prosthodontist present with a complex medical/dental history or treatment plan that will require an evaluation and a second or even third appointment to provide treatment on another day or series of days.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any x-rays if applicable from your general dentist or dental specialist.
- A list of medications you are currently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to exam (i.e., the need for antibiotic prophylaxis), or surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office for your consultation. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
