First, we need you to read and be informed about our clinic’s policy. We feel that everyone benefits when office policy and financial arrangements are understood. Then, we need you to fill in the “new patient forms”. They include your personal information we need to know about and questions regarding your medical and dental profile. Also, what the reason of your visit is and what your expectations are. It is important to give us all the information about your general health status and a list of all the medication you might be taking, for your comfort and safety but also stuff’s and other patient’s safety. After, the dentist will perform a thorough examination, detect potential problems and provide you with an estimate treatment plan. The consultation will include all possible treatment options and fees. After you make your final decision and give us your consent, we book the appointments needed for treatment procedures.
For time saving, you may print and fill in the forms before your visit. (Bring them in, or attach them on e-mail)
