First Visit

Your initial appointment will usually consist of digital x-rays being taken, a comprehensive examination, and review of your treatment options.  Dr. Trina Ruchelman will review the recommended treatment and answer any questions you may have.  A printed copy of your recommended treatment plan will also be provided. 

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have dental insurance, bring your insurance card. This will save time and allow us to help you process any claims.

IMPORTANT:  All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

*** Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (i.e., diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are currently taking any medication (i.e., heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.).


If your previous dentist has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office or you may pick them up and bring them to our office.  If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
