What to Expect During Your First Visit
Part of keeping you informed and maintaining open communication means helping you understand what you can expect during your first visit with our Livingston dentist. Your first appointment consists of an exam and consultation. We will review your current situation, explain your diagnosis, and cover your treatment options.
You will want to bring the following information with you to your appointment:
- Your referral slip and x-rays, if applicable
- A list of any medications you are taking
- Any known allergies or medical conditions
- Medical or dental insurance information for our files
We will provide you with your treatment options based on our findings during your first appointment. It is important that we give you enough time to think, weigh your options, and be an active participant in your oral health. Please let our office know if you are currently on any antibiotics or if you have a medical condition that may be a concern prior to surgery (diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves or joints, rheumatic fever, or blood disorders).
If you’ve had x-rays taken in the last six months, please have your dentist forward them to us. If there is not enough time to get them to us prior to your appointment, please make arrangements to pick them up and bring them with you to the appointment.
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18.
