Patient Information

Registration Form, Medical History & Insurance

ToothbrushAt your initial visit to our office, you will be asked to complete a registration form and medical history. Please plan to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow time for this or complete the following document and forward or bring the completed paperwork to your appointment.

If your dentist has referred you, they may have provided us with your dental benefits (insurance) information. If not, please bring this information with you so we can assist with your insurance paperwork. A list of medications you are currently taking is also helpful.

During your first visit, you will meet Dr. Tuckey or Dr. Karastathis, who will review the purpose of your referral and the history of any periodontal concerns you have. A detailed oral examination will follow and this may include x-rays or a 3D CT scan to assist with diagnosis and planning. They will then discuss findings and potential treatment options and answer any questions you may have. This visit typically takes between 30-45 minutes.

If applicable, your general dentist will be provided with progress reports throughout your treatment at our office.
