Your First Visit
Welcome to Our Practice.
What Should You Expect During Your First Visit?
When you arrive at your first appointment at Central Ohio Periodontics, please come prepared with:
- A referral slip and x-rays from the dentist who referred you to us.
- An updated list of the medications you are taking.
- Dental insurance forms and cards.
Please make us aware of any medical conditions or concerns you may have about having surgical procedures. These include, but are not limited to artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes, or hypertension.
This visit will consist of a thorough periodontal examination. This includes additional x-rays, pocket probing measurements, an assessment of tooth mobility, and recession charting.
If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to be with you during your first visit.
