First Visit

Your initial appointment consists of an examination and a review of your treatment options. A dental cleaning will be performed the same day as the initial exam. During this first exam, Dr. Zabel will provide a thorough overview of your treatment plan, which will lead to that perfect, beautiful smile.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:

  • Any x-rays taken by a previous dentist, if applicable.
  • A list of medications you are presently taking.
  • If you have dental insurance, please bring the necessary completed forms. This will save time and aid us in processing claims.

IMPORTANT: All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please alert the office if…

  1. You have a medical condition (i.e. artificial heart valves or joints)
  2. You are currently taking any medication (i.e. heart medications, anticoagulant therapy, blood thinners etc.).
  3. You are pregnant
  4. You have had any recent surgeries requiring pre-medication.


If your dentist or physician has taken x-rays, they can be forwarded to our office upon your request. If there is not enough time, please pick them up and bring them to our office. If additional x-rays are necessary, they can be taken at our facility.
