What to expect
At your first visit, Dr. Pellittieri will perform a complete oral exam and discuss any treatment you may need.
This may include taking a series of x-rays to get a better look at your entire mouth. By doing a complete oral exam,
we can identify conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease and other conditions of the teeth, gums and jaw.
We will then address immediate problems and provide recommendations for long-term oral health so small issues today don’t turn into big problems in the future.
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to complete any patient forms. If you have a medical condition that requires premedication,
please be sure to request a prescription prior to you appointment, or if you are unsure, please contact the office.
Your teeth cleaning may be performed at your first visit or might be scheduled for a follow-up visit,
depending on the condition of your teeth and gums. Every effort will be made to complete your cleaning right away.
If you’ve had dental x-rays in the last six months, please bring them to your first appointment.
Or you can contact your previous provider and have them transferred to our office.
If necessary, our patient coordinator will discuss and assist with insurance and maximizing your benefits or financing options.
We will work with you on payment arrangements so cost is never a deterrent to doing what is best for you or your family.
