When your first appointment is made, within a couple of days you should receive our welcome packet in the mail which includes several forms to be filled out and brought with you to your first appointment. If you have not received this packet or completed these forms prior to your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes earlier to do so.
Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. In this hour you will have a highly trained technician review and discuss with you your medical and dental history along with any concerns or desires you have at this time. There will also be a full mouth series of digital x-rays taken (18 films), which you’ll be able to see immediately on the computer monitors mounted in every operatory. A panoramic x-ray will be taken if necessary at this time. After all documentation has been compiled, Dr. Lopez will extensively asses all collected data and complete a full comprehensive exam. This exam will take a detailed look at what we call the ’Four Main Food Groups’ of dentistry:
Based on information found and treatment diagnosed, follow up appointments will be discussed fully with you and then scheduled according to your specific needs.
Our friendly dental team is looking forward to meeting you.
New patients are always welcomed!
