Our goals during your first visit is to understand you as an individual. During this visit, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and expectations with Dr. Johnson and our staff. It is generally our goal to complete the examination and consultation process in one appointment. Please expect to spend approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour with us at your initial visit. This ensures our ability to spend quality time with you and assist in your dental decisions by evaluating your x-rays, examining the condition of your mouth, and discussing your personal information and how that might impact treatment decisions. At most visits, future appointments will be determined, estimated fees discussed, and financial arrangements reviewed.
For patients whose treatment needs are more complex, a secondary consultation appointment may be scheduled at a later date. We strongly believe in thoroughly educating our patients and take a "no surprises" approach to patient care. We will communicate with your general dentist so that as a team we can all stay well informed of each other's treatment recommendations.
There will be a fee for the initial examination and consultation. Please, assist us at the time of your initial visit to the office by providing the following information:
- your referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist
- a list of medications you are currently taking
- if you have dental insurance, please bring any forms or insurance cards with you to the appointment
Please notify the office if you have a medical condition, such as an artificial heart valve, a history of infective endocarditis, or joint replacement that requires antibiotic premedication prior to dental appointments. You will need to take this premedication prior to your first visit if you have been instructed to do so by your physician. If your referring dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they be forwarded to our office. To schedule an appointment, please call us at (239) 254-0308 or request an appointment online.
