What to expect
During your first visit with Dr. Rabile, we will take some time to get to know you and to introduce you to our office. We will discuss in detail your dental needs and desires so that we may provide you with the highest possible level of care. You will initially be seen by Dr. Rabile for a comprehensive oral exam in which she will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. The doctor will then review the necessary x-rays and collaborate to make an assessment of your oral condition in order to design a customized dental health plan tailored to your needs. In the majority of cases we will perform a professional cleaning during your visit. Occasionally, we may determine that a return visit is needed in order to provide a comprehensive and thorough cleaning, If it is discovered that you need any treatment, a treatment plan and estimate will be prepared and presented to you. You will have the chance to review the recommended treatment, and address any questions or concerns prior to scheduling any procedure.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
A list of your current medications- If you have medical or dental insurance, bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.
A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 at the consultation visit. Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to surgery (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.)
If you have x-rays from a previous dentist or physician, you may request that they forward them to our office. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
