Your Dental Evaluation
Your initial dental evaluation with Dr. Hanneman, Dustrude or Galow will consist of a complete oral examination and any necessary digital X-rays to determine the current health of your mouth. We will then offer you any treatment options that may be warranted.
If your situation is more complicated, the doctor may request that we take digital photos and study models to help with our diagnosis and plan of treatment. We may ask that you return for a separate consultation visit with the doctor to review findings and discuss your options.
If your needs are routine, a plan can be attained immediately.
If possible, please provide our dental care team with the following information before your first appointment:
- Your dental X-rays (within last five years)
- A completed new patient form with office and health information. A list of medications you are presently taking is helpful. These forms can be found and printed here.
- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring your current ID card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
- Please alert the office if you need to take a dental pre-medication of antibiotic or anti-anxiety medications.
