For New Patients

Thank You for Choosing Our Practice

We would like to extend a warm welcome to our practice. We are committed to doing everything possible to provide you with high quality, state-of-the-art periodontal and implant care and also to make your visit to our office a pleasant experience.

What to Bring on Your First Visit

Please arrive ten minutes early to allow time to complete the medical/dental health questionnaire and patient information form.  Be sure to bring a list of all medications, including  any natural supplements, with dosages, that you take. 

Also, please bring your dental insurance card.  If your general dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, remember to bring them with you to your appointment. 

What to Expect on Your First Visit

Your first visit will include the following: 

  • Review of your complete dental and medical history form
  • Review of  your dental x-rays and/or taking new x-rays as required
  • Oral and soft tissue exam
  • Cancer screening
  • An evaluation of your bite to determine if the way your teeth meet may be contributing to your dental disease

After a thorough exam, your periodontist will discuss their findings and all options for treatment.  Their goal is to help you come to an informed decision regarding care.

Dental Insurance

We will assist you in determining what portion of your treatment is covered by insurance. Please understand, however, that you are ultimately responsible for payment of all services. Should your insurance not cover what is predicted, you will be responsible to pay any uncovered portion.

Payment Options

Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to ensure any portion of treatment not covered by insurance is affordable. We accept cash, check, major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express) as well as outside interest-free financing through Care Credit.
