Your initial appointment will consist of a private consultation with either Dr.Cordano or Dr. Spears. This consultation is so you can get to know the doctors, go over your medical history, dental history and any concerns or needs you might have. After the consultation, we will collect any needed records, then the doctor will perform a comprehensive exam including a review of your x-rays, oral cancer screening and intra-oral camera exam. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss any diagnosis and treatment options with the doctor. Then one of our friendly patient coordinators will review your treatment options and help you create a personal plan to accomplish all of your treatment needs.
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.
- 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 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 there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.

My visit at Cordano Spears Dental was amazing. Dr. Spears was very gentle, caring and eased my mind when it came to my dental needs. The front desk made the financial side of it very quick and easy.
I have six children so going to the dentist can be a tough. The staff make it super easy to bring all six children in. They are very accommodating and get us in and out in a timely manner. The Ladies at the front desk are warm and caring to my family. Dr. Cordano and Dr. Spears are very gentle and make our visits smooth. And they have financing which make co-pays easy.
Cordano Spears Dental has the best hygienists ever! I love getting my teeth cleaned.
I love going to Cordano Spears Dental. They have TV’s on the ceiling so I can watch TV while Dr. Spears is working on my teeth
Cordano Spears Dental is the best office. I had Invisalign and whitening done. I am very pleased with the out come. Dr. Cordano made it very easy to come in for my appointments and explained everything in detail so that I knew what was going to happen. I am very thankful and happy with my smile
I have always been afraid of the dentist, as a child my mom would have to pull me out of the car to get me inside. Coming to Cordano Spears Dental was amazing. Both doctors are very gentle and caring.
