During your initial appointment Dr. Arango will dedicate her time to understand your expectations, concerns, and dental history. During this visit Dr. Arango will use interactive and state of the art technology, such as intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays, to educate you about your dental health and thoroughly explain your diagnosis and ,if necessary, any pertinent treatment options. 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 X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card or information if available. 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 Everbright Dental. 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.
