Here at Steven M. Stern, DDS, PC, we are dedicated to keeping you informed and want you to know what you can expect during your first visit with us.
The first appointment consists of a consultation. We will review your current situation, explain your diagnosis, and cover your treatment options.
You will want to bring the following information with you to the consultation appointment:
- Your referral slip and X-rays if applicable
- A list of any medications you are taking
- Any known allergies or medical conditions
- Medical or Dental insurance to be filed
Occasionally treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, complex treatment plans or complicated medical histories will require evaluation and a second appointment for treatment. Please let the office know if you have a medical condition that may be a concern prior to surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves or joints, rheumatic fever, or blood disorders).
If you’ve had X-rays taken in the last six months, please have your dentist forward them to us. If there is not enough time to get them to us prior to your appointment, please make arrangements to pick them up and bring them with you to the appointment.
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18.
If you have any questions about what to expect on your first visit, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (716) 688-9639 or (716) 652-5229.
