First Visit

Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Any necessary X-rays will be taken to assist in a proper diagnosis. Teeth molds (impressions) are taken for complex cases.Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment tocomplete the consultation.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.

Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior toany dental procedure (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 totreatment (i.e. antibiotics, for pre-med.)

X-Rays

If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 12 months), you may request that they forward them to our office. The x-rays can be emailed to info@romanodental.org  If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our office.
