Patient Information


On Your First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive examination to help in making a diagnosis and to determine if root canal therapy is necessary. We will review your chief complaint, referring dentist’s information and history of the tooth pain. We also use this time to thoroughly explain both the diagnosis and recommended procedure. If your referring dentist has provided us with initial radiographs or x-rays, we will review them at this appointment. Be advised that sometimes it is necessary to take additional radiographs (at no cost to the patient) to aid in diagnosis.

If you decide to receive treatment, the procedure may start immediately. If the procedure is unable to be completed within one visit, we will schedule follow-up appointments accordingly.

Any questions about insurance coverage, payment, medication and scheduling are typically addressed at this appointment.

• Your referral slip and any x-rays, if applicable
