What can I expect at an appointment?
When you arrive at one of our locations, the staff will greet and seat you in our waiting room. You will have to fill out some paperwork. We will examine you as quickly as possible. Our typical wait time is 15 minutes.
What happens if I am a new patient?
As with a first visit to many new medical practices, on your initial visit to an endodontist you’ll complete paperwork, which will include your medical history and consent forms. Prepare for your visit with a list of all prescription and over-the-counter medications you take, information on your medical history including any prior dental health issues, and the contact information for a referring dentist.
Completed forms will be reviewed by an assistant who will take X-rays of your teeth before the endodontist sees you. Your endodontist will review your X-rays and paperwork and talk with you about your symptoms before examining the tooth in question along with adjacent teeth. Once the exam and any required tests are completed you’ll discuss treatment options and the benefits and risks associated with each so that you can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
If you decide to receive treatment, it will be scheduled or may start immediately depending upon the severity of the problem with your tooth. Several visits may be necessary to complete the prescribed treatment. Once the procedure is completed X-rays will be taken again to determine the success of the treatment. Before, during and after your procedure you should feel free to address questions or concerns with your endodontist and the office staff.
