YOUR FIRST VISIT
Our first visit typically includes an x-ray or set of x-rays that allows the doctor to view the structure of the jaw, the position of all teeth, including any that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay that may not be visible otherwise.
The initial visit also involves getting your medical history. When you share your medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your health. Inform us if you have experienced recent hospitalization or surgery, or if you have recently been ill.
Also tell Dr Shahnavaz, the names, doses, and frequency of any medications you are taking — whether prescription or over-the-counter products — and the name of your physician. Inform us of any changes in your health or medications. It is also important to bring up any problems or anxiety you may have about dental treatment.
The information collected in your first visit will help Dr. Shahnavaz select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
Our waiting-room is incredibly comfortable, but we’re trying to take the “wait” out of waiting-room and you can help! Just take a few moments to fill out these forms before you come in for your appointment.
