What to Expect at Your First Visit
During your first visit, our objective is to get to know you better, to become familiar with your past dental experiences and to establish a treatment plan that will best meet your current desires. When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms.
Also, please assist us by providing the following information:
X-rays taken within the past six months.
If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.
Your initial exam will generally last from one hour to one and a half hours. Your doctor will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, and provide an evaluation outlining your periodontal condition, and the best treatment method for your case. We encourage you to ask questions. We’ll be glad to discuss any concerns you may have.
We believe that good dental care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Dr. Pontikas will also send a comprehensive report to your dentist to keep them informed.
