Your First Visit with Dr. Tony Ciocca
You will be asked to fill out standard forms for patient information and health and dental history. The dentist will then sit down with you and listen to your concerns and expectations.
If the dental problem is not too complex, Dr. Ciocca will be able to do a specific examination (and radiographs if needed), and during this visit review with you the findings, treatment options, and recommended treatment, along with estimated fees and appointments needed. However if the dental problem is more complex requiring additional records in order to complete diagnosis and treatment planning then additional appointments (as outlined below) may be needed.
We pride ourselves in being thorough in our record taking, diagnosis and treatment planning. We also take the time to make sure you understand the dental problems and the proposed solutions so that you feel confident you are making the right decision. .
For complex dental problems or full mouth reconstructions the following three appointments are often needed prior to beginning treatment:
Treatment plan presentation:
Your First Visit with Dr. Barrie Renick
Post Operative visit:
Your First Visit with Dr. Leonard Schwartz
Your First Visit with Dr. Jeffrey Yasny
Your first appointment with Sleep Dentistry is a consultation.This is an opportunity for you to meet Dr. Yasny and review your medical history with him.If any further evaluations or testing is required prior to the procedure date, this will be indicated to you.During your consultation, you can openly discuss your dental needs and concerns regarding dental treatment with sedation or general anaesthesia.
An intra-oral examination may occur, as well as the taking of any necessary radiographs (x-rays).For some patients, having someone look inside their mouth or having x-rays taken, is simply intolerable.We understand.In these cases, the exam and x-rays can be deferred until the patient is asleep during a subsequent appointment.
Based upon the particular needs of each patient, the dental treatment necessary, and the anaesthetic options to safely achieve these goals, Dr. Yasny and the patient will collectively formulate a plan.A comprehensive step-by-step anaesthetic outline will be thoroughly discussed with the patient, as well as the benefits, alternatives, and risks of treatment.Patients and their families are encouraged to ask any questions they have regarding their treatment.
