First Visit to a Periodontist in Commack, Setauket NY
What to Expect at Periodontal Consultation
At your initial consultation, we will review your medical history and discuss your diagnosis and treatment options. In some cases, a second visit, known as a treatment plan visit, is indicated.
Please provide us with the following for your initial visit:
- Your referral card and any X-rays if applicable.
- List of all current medications. Please note that you can also fill out our Patient Registration form on our website.
- Dental insurance card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian 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.)
If your dentist 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 films are necessary, they can be taken to our facility.
