First Visit to Lone Tree Family Dentistry
Your initial appointment with Dr. Freeman will consist of a comprehensive exam including necessary x-rays. We will always do an oral cancer screening, and check the health of your entire mouth. During your initial patient visit we can also do your cleaning that same day. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day. At the end of the appointment we will discuss any needed treatment, and go over any questions you may have regarding your oral health.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert Dr. Freeman’s dental office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (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.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), you may request that they forward them to our dental office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our dental office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at Lone Tree Family Dentistry.
