Your First Visit

Prior to Your Visit

Please complete your medical history and provide a list of all medications taken. If available, please provide any recent X-rays from other dental providers, as well as your driver’s license and, if applicable, your dental insurance cards/forms.

Note: All patients under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the initial consultation.

During Your Visit

When you arrive for your appointment, we will complete an in-depth medical and dental health history, and will conduct a thorough examination to measure bone loss, loose teeth, bite, TMJ and other signs of periodontal disease. We will also perform an oral cancer screening.

AZPerio’s doctors, with your input, will establish a treatment plan to address your disease and discuss treatment alternatives to help you obtain optimal periodontal health. A typical periodontal exam lasts about 45 to 60 minutes. Our specialists will provide a treatment recommendation, aligned with your referring practice, that will best suit your long-term needs; a treatment recommendation that is consistent with the one they would provide their loved ones.

For Implant Patients

A 3D CT scan may be recommended for dental implant patients. This scan allows for analysis of available bone, anatomical structures and nerves prior to implant placement, improving the precision and safety of this procedure. A typical dental implant exam lasts about 30 minutes.

Please notify the office if you have a medical condition or concern prior to surgery (e.g. artificial heart valves or joints, heart murmurs requiring pre-medication, severe diabetes or hypertension).

I've only been to one appointment so far but it was very refreshing that the dental surgeon called me the night before to welcome me and to let me know that he was looking forward to seeing me the next morning. All of the staff was wonderful everybody was very helpful and very knowledgeable and did a great job!
