Standard Appointments

Like most dental offices, it is necessary to see you by appointment for non-emergency care. On your first visit, we require a review of your health history including recent dental treatment history. In most cases, complete up to date x-rays are required for a thorough evaluation of your teeth and supporting structures. X-rays from your previous dentist that are 2 years old or less are helpful and should be brought to your first visit. Please call well in advance so that we may reserve an appointment for you.

We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and we ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you must change an appointment, please notify us as soon as possible, and at least 48 hours in advance, so that someone else may use your appointment time.

Emergency Care

If you have a dental emergency, please call our office as early in the day as possible so that we may see you immediately. If an emergency arises at a time other than regular office hours, please call the office for information about obtaining emergency treatment.

Follow-Up Visits

Regular professional cleaning and polishing of your teeth is an important preventive health measure. If you are highly susceptible to gum disease, it is even more important. Our recommendations as to how frequently you come for hygiene visits will be different for each patient. Each patient’s disease susceptibility and immunity must be taken into consideration. These appointments may be the single most important health measure you can take for insuring continued health for the teeth and gums. When you return for your maintenance visits, please advise the business assistant of any changes in your address, telephone number, marital status, employment, insurance coverage and medical history.
