Your initial appointment usually will consist of an evaluation of your medical and dental history, a comprehensive examination and any x-rays or imaging deemed necessary to diagnose the condition of your mouth, teeth and gums. Often, after Dr. Wade has had time to evaluate this information, a second consultation appointment is required to discuss the results of your exam and any treatment needs you may have.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your initial appointment:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
