Initial Visit at VanEndo
If you have not been to our office before, please arrive about 10-15 minutes early so that you have enough time to fill out a new Patient Registration form. An initial consultation visit may take up to 30-45 minutes.
During the appointment:
- one of our specialists will review your medical and dental history and then will examine your chief complaint (pain, swelling or tooth injury). Your clinical examination will include a thorough intra-oral and extra-oral examinations of the condition of jaw muscles and your teeth, gums, inner cheeks, tongue and the roof of your mouth.
- gingival conditions and any previous dental work in the area of concern will be documented. Digital X-rays and a 3-D scan (CBCT) will be taken so your endodontist can examine the area in detail and determine whether any tooth-related conditions may be causing your pain.
- the findings will be discussed and if an endodontic diagnosis is reached with confidence, available treatment options will be presented.
- finally, the estimated fee for the selected endodontic treatment option will be discussed and a treatment appointment will be scheduled. If requested, a pre-determination will also be sent to your insurance.
Note: a parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18.
