We are open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. 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 fact that practice provides surgical services, various circumstances may lengthen the time allocated for a procedure. Emergency cases can also arise and cause delays. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
Your Time is Extremely Valuable to Us!
Our goal is to have you seated in the dental chair and to start your treatment at the time we assigned for your appointment. We know how valuable your time is to you.
In order to achieve this goal, we need your assistance.
Please arrive about 10 minutes before your appointment time so that you can complete any necessary paperwork.
If you need to change your appointment, please give us at least 24 hours’ notice so that we may use the time to accommodate other patients.
Please be on time as we have reserved this appointment exclusively for your treatment. If you are running late, we are faced with the dilemma of not completing your treatment as planned, or running late for the next patient.

We make every effort to provide our patients with the finest care and we understand the difficulty of an unexpected expense. Every effort will be made to verify your insurance before your first visit.
Based on the information provided by you and the insurance company, we will give you an estimate of your portion to pay at your first visit. At best, only an estimate can be given because of the numerous factors involved, including but not limited to, outstanding claims of other providers, waiting periods, frequency limits, and the accuracy of the information given by the insurance representative or website.
After treatment is completed, your insurance claim will be filed. After the insurance payment is received, a statement will be sent to you for prompt payment of any balance.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 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.
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.
A valid driver’s license or photo ID and current dental insurance card if applicable.
IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at the consultation visit.
Please alert the 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 office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility at no additional cost.
This procedure will be performed using local anesthesia. There are usually no restrictions after the procedure concerning driving or returning to work. A doctor is available for consultation at all times should a problem arise after your treatment.
Continue all medications for blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems and any other conditions as recommended by your physician. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.
Please eat a full breakfast or lunch as applicable.
If you have been advised by your physician or dentist to use antibiotic pre-medication because of mitral valve prolapse (MVP), heart murmur, hip, knee, cardiac or other prosthesis, or if you have rheumatic heart disease, please make sure you are on the appropriate antibiotic on the day of your appointment. If there is a question, please call our office prior to your appointment.
If you can take ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), it does help reduce inflammation when taken per-operatively. We recommend 2 tablets of either medication 2-4 hours before endodontic therapy.
Home Care Instructions
Your tooth and surrounding gum tissue may be slightly tender for several days as a result of manipulation during treatment and previous condition of your tooth. This tenderness is normal and is no cause for alarm. Do not chew food on the affected side until your endodontic therapy is completed and your tooth is covered with a protective restoration provided by your restorative dentist. You may continue your regular dental hygiene regimen. Discomfort may be alleviated by taking ibuprofen (Advil), aspirin, or acetaminophen (Tylenol) as directed.
NOTE: Alcohol intake is not advised while taking any of these medications. Should you experience discomfort that cannot be controlled with the above listed medications, or should swelling develop, please contact this office immediately.
