New Patient Information
We are thrilled that you have decided to pursue dental care with Dr. Arutian! We will do our best to ensure that your each and every need is met, be it in terms of dental treatment or your own personal comfort.
For your initial New Patient Exam, Dr. Arutian will perform an extensive visual exam as well as take a number of x-ray films to provide us the clearest picture possible of your dental health. This exam will last approximately forty-five minutes to one hour, and if you would like us to do a thorough cleaning as well, please expect to be in our office for an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and a half.
After reviewing your dental health, both past and present, Dr. Arutian will create a dental treatment plan that will outline all diagnosed procedures, their cost, and what we expect your insurance will pay. In addition, Dr. Arutian will help you understand what procedures are of the highest priority and what we feel requires immediate attention.
If you have had dental x-rays taken within the past 12 months by another dentist, we request that you ask that copies be emailed to our office if available. This will help us decipher what, if any, changes your dental health may have experienced in this time frame. Please ask your previous dental office to send your x-rays to DArutian@gmail.com; or, if digital copies are not available, we will accept films or printed images.
Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment to fill out standard new patient paperwork. Please bring your current insurance card with you. If you would like, we can email or mail new patient paperwork to you so you may complete it prior to your appointment.
