If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, you may request that they forward them to our office or, please pick them up and bring them to our office. In cases for wisdom teeth extractions a panorex x-ray is required. If additional films are necessary, or no films are available, our office is equipped with digital panoramic & 3D cone beam CT imaging.
Your initial appointment will consist of a consultation explaining your diagnosis and treatment options. Dr. Tawfilis will explain the anesthetic options, and together you will choose what is best and most comfortable for you personally. We want to make sure you are well educated on your particular procedure and feel as comfortable as possible. We will also go over your insurance coverage and cost in detail at that time.
