Thank you for choosing Capitol Endodontics! Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. 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:
- Completed forms from the following link, Patient Registration.
- Your referral slip and any x-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications you are presently taking.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, please bring your up-to-date insurance card.
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.)
ANTIBIOTICS: If you have required antibiotics for dental appointments in the past, please make sure you take the prescribed dose by your physician or dentist. Please be advised that the guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis, “pre-op antibiotics”, have changed over the last several years and a review of the the most recent guidelines, “Antibiotic Prophylaxis Prior to Dental Procedures”, by you and your doctor are strongly encouraged.
RADIOGRAPHS or “x-rays”: If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 1-month), you may request that they forward them to our office. However, most patients require additional films at our office for a proper diagnosis. You may also require a 3D scan of concerned area. This will allow us to see the tooth and surrounding structures in a highly detailed image. Please review the following link, Advanced Technology, for more information about our 3D CBCT scanning.
