Your initial appointment will consist of a private consultation with Dr. Cordano. 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:
- 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.
- A driver’s license or current ID
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.
