HEALTH REVIEW

We will discuss your health history, take your blood pressure and review all your medications. Please bring a current list of medications with you. If you have any concerns about your dental health please let Dr. Feisthamel know so that she may address your concerns.


YOUR EXAM:

Dr. Feisthamel will then see you for your examination. You will receive a head and neck exam to look for any abnormalities and an oral cancer exam. Dr. Feisthamel will also check the gum tissue for signs of gum disease and the teeth for signs of decay, wear, fractures and defective restorations.


CLEANING:

Generally, you may have your teeth cleaned at your examination visit; however, occasionally it is in the best interest of the patient to reappoint this procedure.

Dr. Feisthamel will discuss her findings and any recommended treatment with you. Please feel free to ask any questions, we love to talk dentistry.

You will be given a written treatment plan that includes our fees and an estimate of your insurance coverage. This is only an estimate of your coverage. (INSURANCE FAQS PAMPHLET) We encourage you to contact your carrier to determine their payment policies. You remain responsible for any fees not paid by your insurance carrier regardless of the estimated coverage. Deductibles and/or copays are due at the time of service.
