INTRODUCTION

Peace Valley Dental is dedicated to providing you with a pleasant visit and results that you can be proud to show off. To make sure that this process runs as smoothly as possible, our administrative staff is ready to help you with any questions regarding scheduling, financial policy, and insurance coverages.

Your initial appointment will consist of an evaluation of your dental needs. This process involves taking and reviewing the appropriate x-rays. It includes reviewing your medical and dental histories to assess any possible complications that could affect any proposed treatment.  Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the initial evaluation, however, a complex medical history or treatment plan could require additional appointments.

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

  • Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • 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.

IMPORTANT: A parent or guardian must accompany all patients under 18 at their initial visit.

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 on any medication (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. premedications / antibiotics.).

X-RAYS

If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within 6-months), 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.
