We are excited that you have chosen us at Lakeridge Dental Centre as your new home for your oral health and wellbeing. We are committed to making the transition to our practice as smooth and easy as possible for you and your family. If you are new to the area, need a second opinion, have been referred from a current patient, experiencing a dental emergency or just want a fresh new start on your oral health we welcome you!
We will take the required time to properly diagnose your immediate dental concerns, review your past medical and dental history, and create a treatment plan that provides for your optimal dental health. With your cooperation, we will complete a thorough comprehensive dental evaluation.
Your initial appointment usually will consist of an examination and review of your treatment options. It is our goal to provide the highest level of care to our patients, in the most efficient manner. If treatment can be completed or started the day of the initial exam, we will always strive to make that possible. However, 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:
- Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable. Or the office name and phone number where they would have been taken.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).
