a new patient in our practice, you will be asked to complete
a series of questionnaires that will help us in obtaining an
accurate history of your particular problem. The more specific
the information that is made available to us, the better we
will be able to serve you. If you are referred by another doctor,
a summary of that doctor's diagnosis and treatment would be
very useful. We generally find that previous x-rays are beneficial
in our analysis of your problem. We will update these records,
if necessary, to give you a more accurate diagnosis.
Upon your arrival
in the office our receptionist will verify some of your personal
information for our records. For routine care, one of our highly
qualified hygienists will clean your teeth, take the necessary
x-rays and chart gum pocketing, before the doctor examines you.
You will then meet the doctor with whom you are appointed. This
will be your doctor of record, although at times one of the
other doctors may see you or may be called in to offer his advice
in his particular area of expertise.
Upon first meeting you in the office, your doctor will perform
a thorough examination and will review all of your records.
You will always be informed of the analysis of your problem
at each office visit. We want you to have a working knowledge
of our diagnosis so that you can participate in getting the
most effective care and treatment.
your questions and we will make every attempt to answer all
of your inquiries to your satisfaction. At times, this may take
more than the scheduled time. We make a policy of not short-changing
anyone in our practice. Therefore, if we run late, it will generally
be because of the special or emergency needs of one of our patients.
Because of the nature of our practice, we find that we cannot
"categorize" or "standardize" every patient's
time requirement. We would rather be thorough and offer personal
and complete care on an individual basis.
