At your first visit Dr. Pepper and his staff will take the time to get to know you as a unique individual. Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination, full set of digital x-rays and review of your treatment options. Depending on your dental needs and scheduling many times we can do an initial cleaning of your teeth at this first visit.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring the necessary information to your appointment. This will save time and allow us to process your claims. As a courtesy our office will bill your secondary insurance. Any outstanding claims unpaid after 60 days are your responsibility.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays in the last year, you may request that they forward them to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to provide you with the best dental care we prefer to take a new complete full set of x-rays at your new patient exam appointment.
