Your initial consultation visit will last about one hour. Please bring the completed patient information forms that you received prior to your appointment with you. In addition, please bring any radiographs and any other pertinent dental information from your past dentist or dentists. 

During this first visit, you will meet with Dr. Chaffee. She will discuss with you your past dental history and your current dental problems. She will complete a brief examination. If you brought x-rays from your previous dentist, depending upon the type and age of the x-rays she will determine whether additional ones will be needed to properly diagnose your situation. Depending upon the complexity of your situation, impressions of your mouth may also be completed to assist in developing a plan for your dental treatment. 

Some patients will need to be referred to additional specialists such as periodontists (specialists in treating gum disease), endodontists (specialists in treating root canals), or oral surgeons. Once Dr. Chaffee has collected the information needed, she will develop treatment plan options for treating your dental condition. Depending upon the complexity of your situation, she may present this at the conclusion of the first visit or may need you to return for a second appointment to discuss the plan with you. 

Once you and Dr. Chaffee have determined the best plan of treatment, you will be provided a copy of your treatment plan that outlines the fees for the services planned. Then the number of appointments and the sequence of treatment will be reviewed with you and the appropriate appointments made.
