we want you to feel prepared for your first visit to our office.
What to Bring
Photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.)
Your insurance information (so we can estimate any out of pocket costs)
List of any medications you are currently taking and please inform us if:
you have medical conditions that may be of concern prior to dental treatment (e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatic fever, artificial heart valves and joints)
you are currently taking medications such as aspirin, anticoagulants/blood thinners, or medications for osteoporosis
X-rays taken by your previous dentist (contact us for more information)
What to Expect at Your First Visit
As a new patient, we ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment so that we can ensure that all of your necessary paperwork is complete.
For dental emergency visits: If you are experiencing dental pain we guarantee a same-day evaluation. This evaluation will include a clinical exam and required x-rays. Sometimes tests are performed for a concise diagnosis and medications may be prescribed.
For non-emergency new patient visits: The appointment will consist of a comprehensive examination by Dr. Kreuzer, including an oral cancer screening, a periodontal (gum) evaluation by our dental hygienist, and any x-rays needed. Dr. Kreuzer will discuss your treatment options available and answer any questions you may have. Our patient care coordinator will help you with questions about scheduling, financial policies, and insurance coverage so that you can confidently make informed decisions to improve your oral health.
We want our patients to be fully satisfied with the quality of care we provide and will work with you to determine a treatment plan to achieve your desired oral health goals. Please note that sometimes our patients require an extensive cleaning due to periodontal/gum disease or extensive time elapsed since their last cleaning. For these cases we may schedule a subsequent cleaning appointment to ensure that we complete a thorough examination during your first visit.
Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
