What to expect during your first visit:

Again, welcome to our office and thank you for choosing Dr. Ramirez and his staff to server your periodontal and implant needs.

At the first appointment, Dr. Ramirez would like to know you better by reviewing your medical and dental history forms and may ask questions related to your answers. The examination will follow beginning with checking your blood pressure and a thorough extra and intra-oral cancer screen. Next, the periodontal examination will be conducted with a special emphasis on any areas of concern by you or your general dentist. Necessary x-rays, impressions, and any additional diagnostic information will also be collected at this time.

Dr. Ramirez will spend time reviewing and discussing the findings from the examination and x-rays and will answer any related questions. A treatment plan consultation may also take place during this visit.

During this first visit, in order to allow us to provide you with the most optimal and efficient care, please be sure to bring the following:

  • completed new patient paper work (may be found under the Online Forms icon on the home page
  • any referral slips and x-rays from your referring dentist
  • a list of current medications
  • also, please provide us with information regarding any medical conditions which may require antibiotic pre-medication before your dental appointment (i.e.: joint replacements, serious heart conditions)
  • if you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card and picture identification
