We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you are having severe pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you the same day or the next. We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Please understand that various circumstances may lengthen your wait  time as well as time allocated for your procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.


Your initial appointment will consist of an evaluation and consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. The doctor will evaluate the teeth in the area and see if treatment is necessary. Treatment options will then be given to you and you will  have sufficient opportunity to ask any questions. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as a consultation. However a complex case, medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and second appointment to provide treatment on another day. It is our goal to schedule your appointment for you as quickly as possible. When you call our office for an appointment, please assist us by providing the following information:


  • ​Reason for visit i.e. definite treatment (root canal) or evaluation as recommended by your dentist.  Please note that any tooth that has had a previous root canal will require evaluation first.
  • Referring doctor's name.
  • Tooth number.
  • Previous root canal?(approx. date of previous root canal)
  • Insurance co. name, phone number, subscriber name and date of birth.
  • Patient's name and date of birth.(We will see children OVER the age of 10.)​


IMPORTANT

A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the visit.


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, history of 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)


X-Rays

The standard of care requires x-rays to be taken for proper diagnosis and treatment of endodontic or root canal problems. Often times, multiple radiographs from different angles may be required to get more information about the tooth or teeth in question. Rest assured that with today's digital technology, the x-rays required expose patients to minimal radiation exposure (up to 90% less radiation)

We are "In-Network" with most insurance carriers.  As a courtesy to you, we will verify your insurance and advise you of your coverage and estimated co-payments before your first visit.  Please understand that we cannot guarantee that the information we get from your insurance company is correct.  You will be given a written estimate at the time of your visit for your records.
