Your First Visit

On your first visit to our office, you will receive a periodontal examination. You should experience little, if any, discomfort during this examination. If necessary, x-rays will be taken to further evaluate any loss of bone around your teeth.

Afterwards, our findings and your options for treatment will be thoroughly explained. At that time, the doctor will answer any questions you may have.

Our goal is that you leave with a complete understanding of your condition and the treatment needed to restore you to optimum oral health.

New Patient Forms

We have made our patient forms and notices available for download. Filling out the required forms ahead of time can speed your visit with us. Simply download the forms below and bring your completed forms to your first appointment with us.

Patient Education

We find that patients are more comfortable when they know what to expect on each step of a proposed treatment. As 65% of all learning is visual, we offer a three-dimensional animated presentation of all major periodontal and dental implant procedures. This computerized presentation (known as Consult Pro), has become a valuable aid in patient education.

Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed.

Patient Safety

We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.

Sterilization

We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.

We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.

Patient Comfort

While no dental procedure is 100% comfortable, we go to great lengths to minimize any discomfort you might feel. Many of our patients make statements like, “This wasn’t even painful. How did you do that?” The following are some of the latest techniques we use to provide you with as comfortable an experience as possible:

Pre-medication
Patient comfort is one of the most important aspects of care. Different patients have different needs for pain and anxiety control medication. Depending upon the procedure and your wishes, there are many medications we can prescribe.

Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to treatment. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.

Injections of Anesthesia
In the past, injections of dental anesthesia by others may have been uncomfortable. We recognize this and take extra care when preparing a patient for anesthetic. We use a topical anesthetic on your gums first to desensitize them and then administer the injection very slowly and precisely to reduce the burning sensation that can be experienced. These techniques ensure our patients have minimal, if any, discomfort during this portion of care.

Sedation
For those patients who would feel more comfortable with sedation, we offer nitrous oxide and oral sedatives to help you relax during your treatment. Your comfort is one of our primary concerns. If you have any questions about anesthesia or sedation, please do not hesitate to discuss these with us.

In addition, for your convenience, we offer:

  • Headphones with music in the operator
  • Television in the operatory and reception area
