Becoming A Patient

Becoming A Patient

In addition to serving South Florida, our practice attracts patients from across the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. We treat seasonal as well as year-round residents and have referral relationships with prominent national and international dentists and specialists who entrust their visiting patients to our care. Locally, we network with respected providers in other dental specialties to assure our patients the most comprehensive and proficient care.

Your Initial Visit
We look forward to welcoming you to our practice. At Palm Beach Prosthodontics, your health and comfort are paramount to us. If you have a painful or problematic condition that requires emergency treatment, we will focus on that during your initial visit and make every effort to alleviate your distress as quickly as possible. We will then arrange a follow-up appointment for a thorough dental examination that will allow us to fully evaluate the state of your oral health.

The Next Steps
We begin by reviewing your medical and dental history and invite you to tell us about your dental experiences, expectations, and chief concerns. We then perform a detailed exam, which might include taking X-rays if none are available from your previous dentist. Additionally, we might take photos of your mouth and smile, make dentals molds, or consult with other providers—perhaps a dentist who previously treated you or a specialist in another branch of dentistry who might become involved in treating your case. If you have advanced dental disease or other complicating factors, several visits may be necessary for us to complete these steps and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan. After your evaluation, we sit down with you to discuss our findings, answer your questions, and present your options for treatment, describing the benefits and risks of each.

The Outcome
Once you have chosen a treatment option, we will outline the treatment sequence, including length of treatment, approximate number of appointments, any transitional treatment, cost, and payment procedure. Our front desk staff then will coordinate your appointments and provide any related assistance you require. We strive to serve you courteously and efficiently at every visit.
