At your first visit, Dr. Sahlaney will do an examination and answer any questions you may have. You will find a medical history form and a dental insurance form in the patient forms section that we ask you to complete and bring with you to this first appointment.
If you are ready for treatment, certain diagnostic records may be necessary. Diagnostic records are generally taken at the next appointment. However, for those patients who would like to combine these appointments at your first visit, we will try to accommodate you.
We are certainly aware of your concerns with dental sterilization procedures. We will be happy to answer any questions regarding these matters. We follow all sterilization guidelines and heat (steam) sterilize all dental hand pieces. Our x-ray equipment is state of the art.
We understand that some patients may be anxious about visiting an orthodontist for the first time. We can assure you that our staff is prepared to make your visit as pleasant and informative as possible.
