First Visit | New Patient
Inland Endodontics, Dr. Scott J. Starley, DDS, MSD
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Occasionally, treatment can be done the same day as the consultation. However, a complex medical history or treatment plan will require an evaluation and a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
Please avoid taking pain medications (ie, Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or prescription pain meds) within six hours of your consultation, as this may affect the results of the exam and the accuracy of the diagnosis.
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral slip and any X-rays if applicable.
- A list of medications (prescription and over the counter) and supplements you are presently taking.
- If you have dental insurance please provide our office with your insurance information prior to your appointment. 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 the consultation visit.
Please alert the office if you have a medical condition that may be of concern prior to treatment (ie, diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (ie, heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics, for pre-med.)
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays (within six months), you may request that they forward them to our office. Additional X-rays will also be taken at our office. A CT scan may be recommended for some cases.
