Thank you for referring to our office. The patient care is our number one priority, this is why we schedule and perform consultations prior to appointing patients for treatment. We will provide your office with a report after treatment is complete. Call our office with any questions at 941-492-3570 or e-mail us at [email protected]. Thank you.
Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in dentistry.
To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
- Listening to those we are privileged to serve.
- Earn the trust and respect of patients, profession and community.
- Exceed your expectations.
- Ensure a creative, challenging and compassionate professional environment.
- Strive for continuous improvement at all levels.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. 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 referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary information. If you desire to fill the forms out ahead of time 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 procedures (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 1 month), you may request that they forward them to our office. However, it is necessary that we take our own images, sometimes at a different angle and/or in adjacent areas to reach our final diagnosis.
We provide our patients with the latest technology in digital radiography. All radiographs are taken with Dexis digital sensors, providing instant viewing on our computer while significantly reducing radiation levels compared to film-based x-rays.
