First Visit

Your initial appointment usually will consist of a comprehensive examination, any needed x-ray, and a review of your treatment options.  Dr. Lovato will only begin treatment if there is time within the scheduled hour but we will be happy to schedule separate appointments for whatever you need when it is convenient for you.

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

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
  • Completed New Patient paperwork, which can be mailed, emailed, or faxed to you prior to your first visit.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurace 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 prior dentist has taken x-rays, 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 you would prefer to have our office request the records on your behalf, please complete the “Release of Records” form and email, fax, or mail it back to us.  Please include the phone number for your previous dentist. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
