Your initial appointment usually will consist of a complete oral examination by Dr. Mike or Dr. Darcie including x-rays and a thorough review and discussion of your treatment options. Sometimes, treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or a lengthy treatment plan will most likely require additional appointments.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Our new patient information forms, privacy act forms, and financial policy forms can be found under the Patient Registration tab on this website. These forms can be printed off, signed and brought to your first visit as well.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking 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. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
