We Look Forward to Your Office Visit
For your first visit, please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to allow for paper work and to check in with our front desk staff. To ensure you have a successful visit, we’ve provided a link to forms that you can fill out and bring with you to the office. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at 206.367.5500 during normal business hours.
First-Time Visit/New Patient
Bring proof of Dental Insurance with you to the office, along with these forms:
- Patient Registration Form (pdf) – print and fill out all information
- Medical History Form (pdf) – print and fill out all information
- Statement of Privacy Practices & HIPPA Consent Form (pdf) – print and sign
- Post Root Canal Treatment Instructions (pdf) – print and keep with you
After Root Canal Treatment, you may feel some tenderness in the area for a few days following your procedure. This mild discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medications such as Advil, Aleve or Tylenol.
In case of moderate to severe pain, narcotic medications may become necessary to relieve your discomfort. If narcotics are prescribed, keep in mind that these medications may cause drowsiness. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery after taking this medication.
If you have severe pain and pressure, or you develop any swelling following your endodontic procedure, please call the office as soon as you can.
In order to protect the tooth against fracture and keep the temporary filling intact, avoid chewing or biting on the root canal-treated tooth until your dentist restores the tooth with a permanent restoration or a crown.
Your root canal-treated tooth may continue to feel slightly different from your other teeth for some time after your treatment is completed. We may ask you to return to our office periodically for follow-up visits to ensure that the tooth is healing properly.
If any other problems develop, please notify our office as soon as possible
