Get a head start on your initial visit by completing the Patient Registration and Dental & Medical History forms. Download the attached documents, enter the required information, and email the forms to our office two days prior to your appointment so that your doctor and her team can better prepare for your visit.
Welcome to our practice! The entire team would like to thank you for selecting our office to care for your dental needs. We are committed to providing superior quality dental care in a gentle, effective, pleasant manner and are proud of our dedication to our patients. Our hope is to create a dynamic partnership dedicated to your oral health care.
At your initial visit, you will have an opportunity to tell Dr. Cournot or Dr. Lee about yourself and your goals for a healthier smile. They will begin with a comprehensive oral exam which includes a screening of your head and neck muscles, lymph nodes and temporomandibular joint (jaw joints). An oral cancer screening, periodontal exam (examination of your gums) and an occlusal screening (examination of your bite) will also be provided.
We also will review your medical & dental history and take this into consideration when devising a plan for long term health. Last but not least, a thorough examination of your teeth for cavities, cracks and the stability of your existing restorations will be performed. At this visit, a complete set of digital x-rays and digital photos will be taken to ascertain the proper diagnosis and treatment goals. We will assess your risk for future cavities and gum disease by inquiring about your family history, medical history, dental history, current oral home care routine and nutritional habits. A report of all the information gathered will be organized, written and summarized in a “Diagnostic Report of Findings” that is sent to you via mail or email.
At the second visit, your doctor will present and discuss the results of your exam. Together, you and your will plan a course of treatment that suits your individual needs. At that time, your hygiene treatment will be appointed with our hygienist, Debra. The treatment planning session and your hygiene visit may be combined if your schedule permits.
Your oral health is a vital part of your over all well being. We are committed to helping you achieve a healthier and a more beautiful smile that can positively impact your life forever.
Because we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best dentistry and service available, we DO NOT schedule several patients at the same time. Your appointment is reserved exclusively for YOU. If you find that you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, we require 2 working days notice to avoid a $75.00 cancel fee. This permits another patient to receive dental care in your absence.
Should you have any questions, please call our office 212-682-0770.
