Patient Forms To Fill Out Before Your First Visit With Us:
Before your first visit to our office, it is important that we gather all of the details needed to get you started as a patient of Trask Family Dentistry. Please use the link below to fill out all of the forms that are required for our office to begin treating you as a patient.
If you have a dental insurance policy and need to provide or update that information for our records please use the link below
Planning Your First Visit With Us:
- Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your first visit in order to complete any necessary paperwork, provide signatures, and ask/answer any relevant questions.
- Your first appointment will usually be scheduled for at least one full hour which is used to build a comprehensive clinical basis for making decisions about a personal treatment plan.
This will consist of: a review of your medical and dental history, a physical examination of your mouth and teeth by our doctors and hygienists to identify and begin charting your specific needs, a discussion regarding your questions and concerns, and a review of your treatment options.
- If you have had dental x-rays taken within the last year, you should request that they forward them to our office. If you do not have recent x-rays and if current x-rays are necessary, they will be taken at our office during your first visit.
IMPORTANT - Please Read Carefully
All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Medical Conditions: Along with providing this information in your Health History form, please also alert your doctor in-person on your first visit if you have a medical condition that may be of immediate concern prior to treatment.
Office Policy for Pre-Medication:
According to the America Dental Association and the American Heart Association there are currently (as of 2007) few conditions that require antibiotic prophylaxis prior to certain dental procedures. These conditions are heart transplant, congenital heart disease, previous infective endocarditis and prosthetic valves. In conjunction with your cardiologist, we will provide you with prescriptions for the appropriate medication.
In patients with prosthetic joint implants, a January 2015 ADA clinical practice guideline, based on a 2014 systematic review states, “In general, for patients with prosthetic joint implants, prophylactic antibiotics are not recommended prior to dental procedures to prevent prosthetic joint infection.” We will comply with any written instructions from your orthopedic surgeon for pre-medication.
Medication List: Please feel free to bring in a list of your current medications instead of listing them on the medical form.
