Your First Visit

We try to gather as much information from you and your dentist about what treatment you may need prior to your visit so that we can schedule the proper amount of treatment time. Occasionally we may need to schedule separate exam appointments to allow us to assess what treatment is required.

If we have scheduled you for treatment on the first visit (based on information obtained from your General Dentist), we will schedule a 2-hour block of time exclusively for you (we do not double-book). If, for any reason, you need to reschedule your appointment, we appreciate your consideration in providing us a minimum 24-hour notice so that we may give that time to another patient.


A parent or legal guardian MUST accompany all patients under the age of 18 on the initial visit.


Please ALERT THE OFFICE IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION such as diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, etc. Please let us know if you have a condition which requires that you pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment (and please take pre-medication one-hour prior to your appointment).

Radiographs/Digital Images:

All conventional root canal procedures are performed with precision using a surgical microscope which are indexed to our cutting-edge CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Topography). This advanced technology enables us to visualize the intricate dental anatomy in three-dimensions throughout the entire treatment process. With the ability to measure the length of canals and identify small canals often missed in two-dimensional images, our CBCT sets the gold standard, producing unmatched image quality.

If you've had a CBCT at another office, we welcome you to share it with us; however, it's important to note that not all CBCTs are created equal. Our state-of-the-art CBCT is uniquely indexed to our microscopes, providing unparalleled image quality and crucial information during treatment. A CBCT is a standard part of any treatment in our office and is included in the fee for your examination & consultation.

When your dentist refers you to us, they may email or send over radiographs or digital images, offering initial insights into the tooth in question. As part of your comprehensive treatment record, we also take our own periapical images during treatment. Rest assured, there is no additional charge for images taken as part of the course of treatment, and we utilize the latest and safest digital radiography for your comfort and well-being.
