We are always excited to meet new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. For your safety and ours you will be asked a series of questions related to your health and COVID-19. These questions will be asked prior to booking an appointment and will be repeated when you attend our office. You need to wear a mask to our office, you should wait outside until prompted to enter, and on entering you will be asked to wash/disinfect hands, put on shoe protectors, and fill out or update your medical history. We will record your temperature, heart rate and oxygen saturation.
Please bring your dental insurance card for us to copy. If your dentist has given you a written referral or x-rays, please remember to bring them with you to the appointment.
Please bring a list of your current medications and take all routine medications prior to your visit. You will be asked to rinse your mouth with a mixture of mouthwash and hydrogen peroxide. Your appointment begins with a comprehensive examination, including any necessary diagnostic x-rays. The Endodontist will discuss your diagnosis and treatment options. Any questions you have will be addressed at this time. The doctor will outline options that best fits your individual needs.
Treatment is performed using local anesthesia but sometimes other options may be available. Please speak with the doctor about any concerns you have regarding your care. If you have a medical condition that may be a concern such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial joints or heart valves, etc., please let us know before your appointment. If you require antibiotics for any existing conditions please contact our office prior to your visit. All patients under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.
