Your First Visit
We want your first visit to be welcoming, comfortable and fun. We ask our new patients to fill out a registration sheet, HIPPA form and a medical history form. These forms help us avoid possible complications and interactions with medical conditions and medications. For your convenience, please download the forms on the right side of the screen. We are excited to be your Kilmarnock dentists!
X Ray and Record Release
If you are a new patient and have had a full set of x-rays taken within the past year or a panoramic radiograph (a large film where the machine moves around your head while you stand or sit), we would like to have and review these x rays prior to your first visit.
If you have not had x-rays taken within a year, a full set of x-rays may be taken on your first visit. In order to provide adequate dental treatment, we will be unable to do an exam and cleaning without current radiographs.
