Dr Julita S. Patil is Accepting New Patients in Concord CA
Your first visit to our Concord CA dental office is an important one. We take the time to do a thorough examination and find out what is really important to you, so that our doctors can make the best treatment recommendations for you. We reserve 90 minutes for all of our new patient examinations. At this appointment Drs. Patil or Kachachi will recommend the appropriate type of dental cleaning for you, based upon the condition of your gums, and then schedule you with our expert hygienists for a following visit. Once you are an established patient, your future check up examinations will take place at the time of your dental cleaning appointments.
To maximize your appointment time with our doctors, complete your online patient registrations along with your dental insurance card and a list of any medications that you are currently taking. If you are unable to complete your forms in advance, please plan to arrive 15 minutes before you appointment to complete them. Please alert our office if you have any medical conditions that may be of concern prior to your visit (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medications (i.e. heart medications, aspirin, anticoagulant therapy, etc.) or require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e. antibiotics for pre-medication).
Your initial comprehensive exam will include the following:
- Discussion regarding your dental concerns and expectations
- Review your dental and medical history
- TMJ- temporomandibular joint (jaw joint)
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Orthodontic Assessment: an evaluation of your bite
- Evaluation of the condition of existing dental work
- Check for cavities / cavity risk assessment
- Periodontal assessment/ diagnose the health of your gums
- Take dental records (xrays and photographs)
We will always provide you with an estimate for dental treatment before any treatment is rendered.
If your previous dentist has taken recent x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office. If you prefer not to have them forwarded, your new set of digital x-rays can be taken at our facility.
