New Patients



We are always excited to meet new patients. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow time to complete the new patient paperwork, if you have not previously done so.

If relevant, please remember to bring the following to your appointment:

  • Your dental insurance card
  • Your surgical referral slip
  • Any recent x-rays

The first visit is essentially the collection of data that will lead to a diagnosis and discussion with you about the findings. Dr. Ruth will review the ideal treatment option(s), along with a thorough discussion about benefits, risks and alternatives. We will also explain the procedures involved and the treatment sequence.

Sometimes it is possible to schedule the initial consultation together with your treatment on the same day. If you would like more information about this possibility, please let our helpful team members know when scheduling your appointment and they can provide further you with further information.
