Patient Information

Initial Visit

Patient InformationYour initial appointment with Dr. Gottlieb will include:

  • A Detailed Visual Exam
  • Charting
  • Periodontal Evaluation
  • Oral Cancer Exam
  • Intraoral Camera Exam
  • X-rays (if needed)
  • Models of your Teeth (if needed)

This visit will give you the opportunity to communicate the nature of your immediate concerns and problems that you have been experiencing as well as your long term goals. We will discuss what we can do for you and answer your questions to your satisfaction.

In complex cases, no final decision of treatment will be determined at this initial visit. All the information that was obtained will be evaluated and second opinions may be required to ensure that you receive the highest quality of care with uncompromising excellence.

Dental Insurance

If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your insurance information with you. We will prepare all of the necessary forms and do our best so that you receive maximum benefits. However, it is important for you to understand that coverage for a specific dental treatment has nothing to do with your need for that treatment procedure. In addition, no dental insurance will cover all dental fees. It will be important to tell us if you want a pre-authorization for any dental treatment so you would know what your financial responsibility will be. This usually will take about 4 weeks to get a response.
