New Patient Information
Your First Visit
Sean B. Abidin, DDS & Vanessa M. Cao, DDS and her team are dedicated to providing you with a pleasant visit and results that you're proud to show off. Our administrative staff is ready to help you with questions about scheduling, financial policy and insurance, to make that part of the process as simple as possible. 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 a second appointment to provide treatment on another day.
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 surgery (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, artificial heart valves and joints, rheumatic fever, etc.) or if you are on any medication (i.e. 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 6-months), 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 additional films are necessary, they can be taken at our facility using our digital x-ray capabilities. Digital x-rays offer less exposure to radiation and less wait time for processing.
It is important to us that you know we are committed to a lifelong partnership that provides access to preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We take that commitment very seriously. We promise to get to know you medically and personally. We promise a gentle touch, a comfortable environment, and a genuine smile. Welcome to our practice.
