Patient Info

What You Need to Know

Your First Visit
Your initial appointment will last about an hour or an hour and a half. We will discuss your health history, dental history, immediate pain and concerns, and long-term goals. If necessary, we’ll update your records with X-rays at this time. With advanced diagnostic technology, Dr. Pate will evaluate your entire mouth – teeth, gums, occlusion, jaw joints, and soft tissues. A head and neck evaluation, oral cancer screening, and gum disease assessment will complete your checkup. All of the information we gather will be reviewed by Dr. Pate, and you will be encouraged to become an active participant in treatment planning.

Patient Forms
We have made our patient forms available to you as Adobe Acrobat files. For your convenience, we recommend printing and completing these forms at home.

Payment Options
Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of estimated fees, and we will inform you of all estimated costs before treatment is administered. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Discover, Visa, MasterCard and American Express, and CareCredit.
