Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Sometimes, treatment can be done or started the same day as the consultation depending on how involved the procedure will be. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable. Records release form to send records to Dr. Tracy
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary ID cards. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please arrive about 10 minutes early to complete Patient registration Forms if you have not already filled them out.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office 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, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy (Coumadin), etc.).
If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward copies to our office either through the USPS or via e-mail if they are digital. Our e-mail address is email@example.com. If there is not enough time, please pick up the copies and bring them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
