For most patients, the first visit to our office is for a consultation. This consultation involves gathering information from you, reviewing the records sent by your dentist, examining your mouth, and discussing treatment and therapy options. A typical first visit lasts from 30 to 75 minutes. Before this appointment, you will be asked complete some paperwork. You’ll start by filling out forms providing us with your general medical and dental history, as well as information about your dental insurance coverage. You will be asked to read and acknowledge receipt of our privacy policies regarding your medical records and personal information, as well as our Disclosures Required by the Fair Credit Billing Act. Finally, you must read and sign a Consent for Use and Disclosure of Health Information form before we can begin to treat you.
Dr. Soleymani will review your medical history and dental records, and you will receive a complete oral examination. Our patients are generally referred to our office by their dentists for a specific reason, but a complete exam by Dr. Soleymani is necessary before any course of treatment can be recommended. After this examination, he will discuss with you the nature and extent of any periodontic issues and will recommend the appropriate treatment options.
