WHAT TO EXPECT
Your Endodontic Experience
We are always excited to meet our new patients! We know that every patient is unique, and we are committed to providing you with the highest quality endodontic care based on your individual needs. The field of endodontics has advanced greatly in the past decades allowing for a very smooth patient experience that is not very different from having a tooth filled or being treated for other common dental procedures.
Your first visit at our office will consist of a comprehensive examination including diagnostic imaging as needed. During this first visit, a treatment plan will be determined and discussed with you, and your endodontist will happily answer any questions you may have at this time. Finally, your doctor will outline a solution that best fits your individual needs. Please note: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
If you have not completed the Patient Registration Forms via our website under Patient Info – Patient Forms, please plan to arrive at our office a few minutes early in order to complete these forms via tablets in the office.
