New Patient Information – Baltimore, MD
Your New Patient Guide
Has your dentist recommended that you visit a periodontist? Are you tired of dealing with gum disease or tooth loss and want an expert to take care of it right away? It can be a bit nerve-racking to set up an appointment if you haven’t visited a dental specialist before, but this page will cover everything you need to know beforehand. Just read it over, and if you have any questions, you are always welcome to reach out to our team. We want you to feel at ease from the moment you step through our door!
Your First Visit
For everyone’s safety, you will be screened for Covid-19 when you enter our practice, and we do require everyone to wear a facemask. We’ll start by going over your medical history (which you’ll share by filling out our forms), and then we’ll perform an exam and take some X-rays. From there, your periodontist will discuss their findings, propose a treatment plan, and answer any questions you might have. Once you have both agreed on the next steps, you’ll be brought to our treatment coordinator to work out the details.
