Medical / Dental History
Although many patients feel that having to fill out a new medical history form is unnecessary and annoying, it is in actuality, an important part of medical care. Simply put a medical history form is an organized quick view of your past and present medical conditions and complaints. It provides Dr. Freidell with essential information that will be needed to treat you.

Dental Treatment Consent Form
For your convenience, we make available this generalized dental consent form for your review and signature.
Prior to any procedure, Dr. Freidell will take the time to discuss the anticipated benefits and commonly known risks of each recommended procedure, and outline alternative treatments options, or the potential consequences of no treatment.

Notice of Privacy
This privacy notice is required by law, and describes how medical information about you may be used and disclosed, and how you can get access to this information.

Your comfort and privacy is important to us. Please do not hesitate to ask our dental staff any questions you may have.

Please read and fill in the forms prior to your appointment or arrive 15 minutes early to fill in on site.

It is very important that Dr. Freidell know your medical history, including any medications that you are taking. This information should be in your file, and should be kept current.

This is due to the potential for drug interactions during treatment. Even Novocaine can cause a serious interaction with certain drugs.

Initial Exam

At your first 90 minute visit, we will take the time to get to know you (and you, us) and discuss your dental needs and desires.

Your initial appointment will consist of:

  • Review of your medical history
  • Comprehensive oral examination
  • Examination of the TMJs and muscles
  • Oral cancer screening
  • Periodontal charting
  • Any necessary x-rays

At the conclusion of the initial visit a customized treatment plan will be outlined and your cleaning appointment will be scheduled.
