Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. This initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which might include the following: the panoramic x-ray, full mouth series for proper diagnosis of the entire mouth, or bite-wing x-rays for diagnosis of decay in between the teeth.

Occasionally, treatment can be performed the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on a separate day.

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

X-rays (if applicable)
A list of your current medications


If you have x-rays from a previous dentist or physician, 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. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
