Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. Unless you are coming in for an emergency, treatment is usually not completed the same day as the consultation. We understand that there are many offices that will complete same day treatment, but Dr. Pittman and Dr. Dupre pride themselves in seeing one patient at a time and giving their patients their undivided attention. We would prefer to schedule patients for a block of time in the schedule that best suits their dental needs.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable,and when they were taken. We will gladly assist you in calling your former dentists to get a copy of the x-rays.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
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. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
