Frequently Asked Questions
Your appointment time is reserved specifically for you. Every effort will be made to see you on-time.
• The initial visit, with the exception of certain emergency cases, is for consultation only. This enables us to fully evaluate your condition, concerns, needs, and desires so that we can develop an appropriate treatment plan that is custom tailored for you.
• Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the time of initial consultation.
• Please bring all pertinent medical information, names/telephone numbers of your physicians, and a list of all medications you are taking.
• If you have dentures or occlusal splints/guards (even if you do not wear/use them), please remember to bring them with you to your appointment.
