Your initial appointment will begin with a consultation to discover and explain your diagnosis and treatment options.
Usually, complete root canal treatment is performed the same day as the consultation. Root end surgery (which is less commonly indicated), will often require separate evaluation and treatment appointments. Re-treatment of a previous root canal, and some first-time root canals, may require a second treatment appointment to complete.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your endodontic referral slip and any applicable x-rays your dentist sent with you.
- A list of medications you are presently taking and a list of any allergies.
- If you have dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
In preparation for your first visit, you are welcome to download our new patient forms:
