Your initial appointment will consist of a comprehensive oral examination. We will need current x-rays, obtained from your referring dentist if they are available, periodontal probing, photographs and study models of your teeth. This appointment will be scheduled for an hour and a half. A treatment conference will be scheduled after Dr. Merrick or Dr. Perler has had an opportunity to review his findings and develop a personalized treatment plan.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- A list of all current physicians and their phone numbers.
- A list of medications you are currently taking.
- A list of any total joint replacements, the surgeon and date of surgery.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation visit.
If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, 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 for your consultation. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
