Patient Registration2

  • What to bring to your appointment

    • Appointment Slip / Referral slip
    • List of medications and dose you are taking of each and a copy of your most recent INR if you are taking Coumadin
    • Dental insurance card, and driver’s license.
    • Patients under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
  • What to expect at your office visit

    On the day of your appointment, please avoid taking pain medications unless directed by Dr. Aminlari as this can alter the results of our testing and interfere with the accuracy of your diagnosis. A typical visit to our office begins with completing paperwork, which includes your medical history and consent forms. It is advisable to bring a list of all medications that you regularly have taken within the past month (both over-the-counter and prescription), their doses and why you’re using them. If you require medication prior to dental cleanings (i.e antibiotics for pre-med), please contact your prescribing physician for medication and take them prior to your visit. Once all forms are complete, an assistant will take you back to the operatory.

    Our highly trained assistant will discuss your chief complaint, collect data regarding the history of your tooth concerns, take an x-ray and lastly review your medical history and blood pressure. This information is then shared with Dr. Aminlari who will conduct several tests and fully discuss the findings and your options with you before beginning treatment. Dr. Aminlari will make you aware of the benefits and risks involved in treatment, as well as the prognosis for your tooth, so you can make a wise decision. The treatment itself can often be completed that day; however, at times a second appointment is needed. Before treatment begins, you will receive local anesthesia to numb any sensations you may feel during the procedure. If you are apprehensive, we do offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

  • Post treatment care

    Following root canal treatment, your tooth will no longer be sensitive to hot or cold. However, the tooth may be sensitive to biting up to a week after the treatment. You may experience soreness around the gum tissue. This is usually the result of the injection site or the rubber dam spring that was placed on the tooth during the procedure.

    We recommend taking 800mg of Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) every 6 hours for the next 2-3 days. If you cannot take ibuprofen, 1000mg Tylenol (2 Extra Strengths) may be substituted. Always consult with your physician if you have any questions about our recommendations and your current medications.

    A temporary filling has been placed in your tooth. It is not unusual for a thin layer to wear down and feel like a divot. If you feel the entire temporary filling has come out, please contact us.

    Please contact your general dentist for a permanent restoration as soon as your symptoms subside or within the time frame we have recommended.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at any time. We are very concerned about your comfort!

  • Financial and office policies

    We will gladly help you process and submit your insurance claims to your insurance companies such as: Delta Dental Premier, Dentemax, Blue Cross/ Blue Shield, Cigna, Guardian, Aetna, ADN, and Metlife.
