First Visit


Thank you for choosing our office for all your prosthodontic needs. We have created a relaxed, supportive atmosphere where you can feel confident in the high quality treatment you receive.

Your first visit will consist of a thorough examination where Dr Tilghman will assess the esthetics of your smile and the health of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure. Depending on the complexity of your condition, photographs, X-rays and impressions of your bite may be taken at this visit.

After your exam, we will explain our recommendations for treatment. You will have ample time to discuss the different treatment options and any other questions you may have. In some cases, a separate consultation visit may be necessary. This additional appointment is complimentary to you.

Please assist us by providing the following information at your first exam:

  • A list of medications you are currently taking.
  • Any recent X-rays from your general dentist. If none are available, X-rays may be taken during your visit.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring your insurance card. This will enable us to give you an estimate of your costs.
  • If required, bring your referral from your general dentist. Please check with your insurance company to see if a referral is required in order for you to receive treatment at our office.

Please inform us of any medical conditions you may have, for example: diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. Thank you!
