Your first visit will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require additional evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another appointment.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
* Your referral slip and any X-rays from your dentist if applicable.
* A complete list of medications you are presently taking.
* If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays within last 6-months, please request that they forward them to our practice. We routinely take x-rays as part of our diagnosis. At Advanced Endodontics of Houston, we have the latest technology in digital dental x-ray requiring the least amount of radiation possible.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
