First Endodontic Visit & Scheduling


Your initial appointment will consist of an evaluation and consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Many root canal procedures can be done the same day as the consultation/evaluation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan may require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.


Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
  • Your endodontic referral slip from your referring dentist and any X-rays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary insurance ID card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
    IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all visits.

    Please note on your medical history if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment(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.).
      X-Rays
    The standard of care requires x-rays be taken for proper diagnosis and treatment of endodontic (root canal) problems. Often times, multiple radiographs from different angles may be required to get more information about the tooth or teeth in question. Rest assured that with today’s digital technology, the x-rays required expose patients to significantly less radiation than traditional radiographs with film.
      Scheduling
    Our office is open Monday-Friday from 7:00 am until 4 pm. We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you that day.

    We try our best to stay on schedule to minimize your waiting. Due to the nature of our practice, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
