First Visit with Endodontist
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 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 radiographs if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary information and your insurance card. 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 your procedure (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.). Please inform our office if you are currently on, or have ever been on any medications for osteoporosis such as bisphosphonates.
If your previous dentist has taken recent radiographs, you may request that they forward them to our office, as they may be helpful in your diagnosis. However, we will be taking our own diagnostic and working films as deemed appropriate by the doctor. Your post operative radiographs and final report will be provided to your referring dentist.
