We understand that Emergencies arise when you least expect them, as such we will make every reasonable attempt to work with your schedule to be seen and or treated as quickly as possible.
When at all possible, we prefer to see patients for evaluation prior to initiation of treatment. The reason for this is to be able to spend the time with each individual patient to make a proper diagnosis, and to discuss all treatment options risks and benefits. We can also properly schedule the appropriate amount of time for each patient's unique situation. The fee for the consultation is credited back to patient for treatment if it is initiated within 30 days of the consultation; however, this does not usually apply to additional CBCT scans.
Historically speaking, on any given day, up to half of the patient's referred for a root canal either do not need one, or it is one of several options.
We will always do the best we can to answer any and all questions and concerns you may have at the time of your appointment. Should you have any additional concerns after you have left the office, please do not hesitate to call or email the office directly.
