Pre -Visit Checklist

Thank you for contacting our office, and welcome to our practice.


Please follow these guidelines in preparation for your visit:

1) If you are pregnant,please contact your OBGYN for consent and any special instructions.

2). Please bring your referral information and x-rays, if any, from your restorative dentist.

3). Eat breakfast or lunch before your appointment to ensure a normal blood glucose level.

4). Please advise our office of any medical conditions that may be of concern (ex.latex allergy, anxiety, eg).

5). Take all of your routine medications, including aspirin therapy, if applicable. However, do not take medication for discomfort (i.e., ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, Aleve, etc.) at least 6 hours prior to the first visit because it may mask symptoms and hinder diagnosis.

6). If you require prophylactic antibiotics before dental visits for a prosthetic heart valve or orthopedic prosthesis (artificial hip, knee, elbow, etc.), please call our office for instructions. If you've already discussed this with us, you do not need to call again.

7). If you take Coumadin (blood thinning meds,warfarin sodium), please contact your physician in advance to see if it should be stopped or continued.

8). Occasionally, last minute emergency patients can delay our schedule, so please allow a little extra time for your appointment. We value your time and will try to keep you updated when delays occur.

9). All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied on each visit by their parent or legal guardian.

10).This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are normally no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work.

11). Insurance: Endodontic fees are based on the complexity of the procedures. We will make every effort to get full reimbursement by your insurance carrier, so please bring your dental  insurance information with you. We  participate with a select group of insurance carriers. We welcome any questions you may have about payments and insurance benefits.


We look forward to being of service to you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us.
