Depending on arrangements made by your General Dentist, your initial appointment will consist of a consultation to determine your needs and to explain your diagnosis and treatment options, or your appointment may be for actual treatment. Occasionally, treatment can be done 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 another day.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently 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: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to 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.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
Though prior x-rays help to provide a visual history of your dental health, we will expose our own x-rays to aid in diagnosis and while providing treatment. Crystal Coast Endodontics utilizes a digital x-ray system(Sirona) to minimize your exposure.
