Your child’s initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining the diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, emergency treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of your child’s allergies or medications.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. 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 our office if your child has a medical condition that may be of concern at the initial appointment (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.), if they are taking any medications (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.), or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If another dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6 months), 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. We may need to take additional x-rays in order to make a complete diagnosis.
