First Visit

What Will Happen On My First Visit?

We schedule your appointment with Dr. Elbaz to ensure you have his undivided attention, giving you the time to ask questions and ensure we meet all of your individual needs.

Please assist us at the time of your initial visit to the office by bringing the following information with you:

• Your referral slip and x-rays from your referring dentist.
• Your filled-out patient registration form – you can download the patient registration form from our website
• A list of medications you are currently taking (unless you have already included this information in your patient registration form).
• Dental insurance forms or insurance cards (if you have dental insurance).

All patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the consultation appointment.

Dr. Elbaz will complete an in-depth medical/dental health history and a thorough examination to measure for bone loss, loose teeth, bite, oral cancer screening, TMJ, and other signs of periodontal disease.  He will also review any necessary diagnostic x-rays, as well as information provided by your dentist, so that he may thoroughly evaluate your clinical situation and determine the proper treatment plan to meet your needs.

Following your examination, Dr. Elbaz will discuss several treatment options, their respective benefits and drawbacks, and explain the procedures involved.
